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.


  • One-inch of water per week will allowing the water to reach deep into the root

  • system.


  • 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.
