Lawn Watering Tips

Your lawn is a living thing that needs water to survive. The summer heat usually means more processing of the already limited rainfall, but with less natural moisture available you should consider giving your grass some help by using an extra sprinkler or two when necessary!
A healthy environment for growing turf starts with good irrigation practices—and there’s no better way than dragging out those hoses from time-to-time so they stay full enough all year round.

What Happens To The Water You Put On The Lawn?

The blades of grass are covered with tiny pores called stomata. The plants absorb water mixed in nutrients and minerals through the roots, which is then used for photosynthesis; this process creates food that sustains them throughout their life cycle – even after death when it becomes part of other plantlife again! In order to do so though requires more than just rainfall: excess moisture (or “waste material”) released during transpirations replaces oxygen from air around us while also releasing its own vapor into our atmosphere as well .

 Rules for watering:

  • Maintain good soil moisture levels
  • Water less often, but thoroughly
  • Water late in the evening or early in the morning
  • Ensure the water reaches the roots
  • Water evenly around the plant for a balanced well-developed root system
  • Apply gradually to allow water to fully penetrate the soil without run-off
  • Use water-saving irrigation methods e.g. drip irrigation
  • Use quality, clay-rich soil for better water retention
