Best time to water

If You Water, Do It in the Morning, between 6AM and 10AM, is the most efficient time to water your lawn. Less is lost to evaporation and your lawn has time to dry off before nightfall. Watering in the afternoon is throwing water away to evaporation. Watering at night invites disease. Half an inch twice a week or 1 inch a week should keep your lawn refreshed.

Methods of Lawn Watering

Portable sprinklers offer a reasonably-priced method for watering grass. Since sprinklers have a variety of distribution and range methods, select a sprinkler according to the size and the shape of your lawn watering zone. Rotary and impact sprinklers are intended for circular watering zones on large to medium lawns. Irrigation systems can also help conserve water.

Soak 6 Inches

Soak 6 Inches Into the Soil. Water long enough to moisten the soil about 6 inches down, which is the depth of a healthy grass root system. To see how far the moisture seeps down, check the soil every 15 minutes during the first watering.

Lawn Stress Factors

Heat, dry weather, and foot traffic are major stresses for most types of grass. Others include weeds and bugs, but they can become worse when your lawn is already suffering.

Stressed-out lawns aren't growing, so feeding them won't help much. Instead feed before the hot, dry weather arrives. Once the weather cools down and rain returns, feed again to help your lawn recover quicker.
