Lawn Watering Tips

Water early — between 4-8 AM

• Never water during the heat of the day. It’s a waste of water because it evaporates in the sun.
• Don’t water at night, it could cause fungus and diseases.

Grow your grass longer

• Longer grass means deeper roots.
• It keeps the soil cooler and needs less water.
• Keeping it longer strengthens the roots, helping them to pull more water from deep in the soil.

Mulch your grass

• Slows evaporation.
• Grass clippings hydrate your lawn and adds nutrients to the soil.

Sharpen Mower Blades

• A sharp blade makes a cleaner cut, and the grass heals faster.
• A dull blade tears the grass leaf and causes more stress to your lawn.

Dormancy is OK

• Dormancy happens when it’s not watered regularly, it’s the lawn reacting to dryer conditions. Most grass varieties are very resilient and bounce back quickly.
NEW VARIETIES of grass stay green longer and use less water.
