Watering your lawn and garden are important to keep it green and healthy. With so many worries about drought conditions and water restrictions placed upon homeowners year after year, it’s sometimes difficult to keep you lawn irrigated.
Here are some helpful tips for keeping your lawn and garden irrigated.
• Water your lawn in the early morning: You should set your timer to water by 5:00am in the morning. This way the water has time to soak into the ground before the sun’s rays evaporate it and the winds begin to blow. Early morning watering also allows the grass to dry during the day which reduces disease problems.
• Water your lawn 1” every week: To gain optimal results for you lawn, you should opt for the long infrequent soaking rather than a little each day. Your lawn should receive at least 1” of water each week to stay healthy. Newly planted lawns will require watering each day to encourage growth for at least 6-8 weeks.
• Use an irrigation timer: For best results, you should set up a timer with your irrigation system. It helps you conserve water and relieves you of the duty of remembering to turn the system on.
