PROPER WATERING CAN HELP YOUR LAWN LOOK ITS BEST
At Lawn EMT, we are committed to of creating and preserving well-maintained lawns.
For your lawn to look its best, all that’s needed is some watering, mowing, and
fertilization can keep it healthy, along with annual de-thatching and aerating. With the
right approach, your lawn can be healthy enough to resist disease, weeds, and drought
on its own.
The average lawn only needs about one inch of water per week, either by rainfall or in
combination with irrigation. Of course, the water requirements vary between different
grass varieties, but one inch per week is sufficient in most cases. Water requirements
also vary with seasonal changes, sun, wind and shade factors, soil conditions and the
degree of slope within a given area.
The healthiest lawns are produced when they are watered thoroughly at infrequent intervals.
The best times to water your lawn are early morning or early evening, when
there is generally less wind and heat. Watering at these times allows for less evaporation into the air, greater penetration into the soil, and less run-off.

It will usually take 10-15 minutes to water your lawn thoroughly. If puddles or
run-off occur, turn your sprinkler off for a few minutes to allow water to
penetrate into the soil. If your watering system is applying water faster than it
can be absorbed by the soil, you will want to adjust the amount of water applied,
or the timing of the application, or both.
Let the lawn completely dry out between watering intervals.
Most turfgrass can tolerate dryer conditions over a reasonable period of time.
