Having the most luscious yard on your block comes down to four things: seed, sun, soil, and water. Today we’re going to take at how to water grass to make it as healthy as can be. You might find there’s more to it than you’d first assume.

How Long to Water Grass

Grass needs more than just a sprinkling of water, so a quick blast of the hose or short rain showers aren’t enough to make a positive impact. In fact, the average lawn requires 1″ to 1-1/2″ worth of water a week to stay healthy. This means that watering for a longer period of time is required.

How Often to Water Grass
