Top 5 Tips for Watering your Lawn

Watering your lawn is one of the most important parts of caring for your lawn. Not watering enough leads to a range of different lawn problems and can ultimately lead to your lawn’s demise. On the other hand, watering too much can have adverse effects on your lawn as well.


So here are the top 5 tips we recommend in keeping your lawn well hydrated and drought tolerant, so it performs at its best.

  1. Use sprinklers and soaker hoses for a more consistent spread of water to your area. Try not to hand water with a hose as this will only lead to inconsistencies in your watering.
  2. Water your lawn in the morning and in the evening. You are best watering when it’s not the heat of the day. You also don’t want to water at night, as this can cause fungal issues in your lawn.
  3. Water for longer time periods, less frequently. Watering your lawn 2-3 times a week for an hour each time is much better than watering your lawn 6 times a week for only 15 minutes. You want to train your lawn to be more drought tolerant. Frequent short watering’s will only cause your lawn to become thirstier and less drought tolerant.
  4. Different lawn types require different amounts of water, so take this into consideration when choosing a new lawn.
  5. Varying weather conditions will require you to change up your normal watering routine. If there are a few days in a row of substantially hot weather, you may need to add some extra watering’s into your routine. Likewise, if you have a few days of wet weather, you don’t need to water your lawn during that time.

It is also important to abide by any water restrictions in your area. By ensuring you select a drought tolerant lawn and follow these simple steps it will be a lot more manageable for your lawn to cope during these restrictions.
