Lawn Watering: How to Do It Right

When it comes to watering lawns, people tend to fall into two categories: those who are confident weather will do its job, and those who are diligent about their watering efforts. Sometimes, each group ends up doing it right, maybe without even knowing it! When it comes to lawn watering, there actually are things you should and shouldn’t be doing. Learn how to do it right.

Lawn Watering: How to Do It Right

  • How Much Water Your Grass Needs: Grass needs more than just a sprinkling of water, so a quick spray down with your hose or short rain shower isn’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. A rain gauge can help give you an idea of how much mother nature is doing to help.
  • How Often: For green grass, long soakings once or twice a week are more beneficial than surface-level watering every day. Summer heat and sunlight might make your lawn require even more water, so keep an eye on the weather to help you determine if you have to add in an extra day during the hottest weeks of the year.
  • Timing: If you have to pick a time of day to water, we recommend choosing the AM hours. It’s more beneficial to water in the morning than at night because night watering can attract pests or result in fungal or mold-related lawn diseases.
