When to Water

Be sure to water deeply and infrequently. Avoid watering during the hottest part of the day. It is best to water when there's less wind, less hot sun, and your lawn has a full day to dry.

W
atering at night invites mildew and fungus but if you can't water in the morning aim for around 4-7 PM.
In the hot afternoon, much of your water can be lost to wind and evaporation.


How often should I water my lawn?

A very general rule of thumb is to provide lawns with 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week, from irrigation or rainfall. A good way to check moisture penetration is to probe the soil with a screwdriver or similar object.
How often you water will vary based on what type of soil you have.
In order to conserve water and give grass just what it needs, it’ll help you to understand the factors that influence irrigation frequency.

Make Sure You're Watering Properly

If using sprinklers, apply about a ½ inch of water twice per week. To know how long it takes to apply that much water, set out empty tuna cans to measure it and determine the time needed to apply a good thorough watering. It could take between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the type of sprinkler you use. Also, sprinklers don't always put water down evenly.

T
o make sure water is going where it's supposed to, check to see that the water levels in the tuna cans are equal to know your sprinkler is doing its job.
