Watering

Keeping your lawn thick, green and healthy means doing several things right. One of the most important is making sure there's enough moisture to maintain growth.


Q: How do I know if my lawn needs to be watered?

A: When footprints do not "bounce" back up.

A: When lawn starts to change colors in areas.

A: When discoloration occurs along driveways and /or sidewalks first.


Q: What time of day should I water my lawn?

A: Before 10am in hot, dry weather.

TIP: Timing Makes A Difference! One basic rule is: Water your lawn when it will be most effective.

  • Avoid watering in the heat of the day to make sure your water goes down to the roots instead of going up as vapor. 
  • Also avoid watering when windy conditions will affect even coverage or cause you to water your neighbor's lawn instead of your own.


Nature's rainfall schedule is not dependable. Some additional watering is almost always necessary, at least during the hotter and drier parts of the year, to avoid turf stress. Lawns turn brown, thin out, and run into more disease and insect problems when under stress. A thin, stressed lawn also creates room for weeds to invade. So whether you use underground or portable sprinklers, there are a few basic guidelines to follow to avoid these problems and maintain good lawn health.

TIP: Soak Those Roots!

  • When you water, saturate the soil to a depth of 4" to 6"
  • Water deeply, but less frequently.
  • Frequent, shallow watering causes the grass to send roots to the surface for water, where they suffer more quickly during dry, hot spells. Watering for just 20 minutes can do your lawn more harm than good.
  • Also be sure to put down extra water along curbs and pavement, because these areas heat up faster and dry out quickly.
