Water early — between 4-8 AM

• 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.

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

• NEW VARIETIES of grass stay green longer and use less water.
