Summer weather is here and that means time to make sure your lawn is properly watered! There are several common mistakes when it comes to summer lawn irrigation. It is important to make sure that you aren’t overwatering, watering too often, or watering at the wrong time of day.
It is a common misconception that you need to water your lawn everyday for long periods of time. It is not necessary to water your lawn everyday. In fact, it isn’t good to water every day. A better technique is watering less often (maybe every other day or every 2 days), for longer amounts of time. This creates a deeper root system. A good rule of thumb for the summer is watering your lawn with 1 to 1.5 inches per week.
It is also important to make sure that you are watering at the proper time of day, otherwise you may just end up wasting water. The best time to water during the hot summer months is in the morning, around 2 hours before sunrise. If you water during the heat of the day, the water will just evaporate and won’t soak into the grass’s roots. Many think that watering at night is also a good option, but this could cause problems down the road. Watering at night can lead to disease in your lawn.
