Watering techniques should be adjusted during the growing season.

Proper watering techniques are essential to an Ecology Friendly Lawn, and can reduce disease, insects, weeds and even result in water savings.

Watering techniques should be adjusted during the growing season to compensate for precipitation and lengthy periods of drought. The amount of water and the duration of each watering should be adjusted according to soil and grass types.

Raising your cutting height will also help to retain moisture.

Raise your cutting height to retain moisture.

Apply 1 inch (2.5 cm) of water, once per week (under normal conditions) in early morning (vs. mid-day or evening).

Avoid watering in the afternoon because a large percentage of the water is lost to evaporation. Avoid evening watering because the lawn will remain wet for 12 to 15 hours, until the sun dries any remainder off the lawn. This prolonged wet period can increase chances of fungal disease.

Increase watering frequency during hot periods. To maintain a lush lawn during the hot periods of the summer, more frequent watering is required.

Generally, one application of water every 4 to 5 days is adequate. Sandy soils may require an application of water every 3 to 4 days.
