Wondering How Much Water Your Lawn Needs?

During the hot summer months in Wisconsin have you ever wondered if your grass is getting enough water?  Here are some brief tips that can help your lawn to look it’s best through these next few months.

1. Make sure you water it early in the morning, typically around 5 a.m. while humidity is still high and the dew is still present. Watering in the morning rather than in the evening will save your lawn from dangerous diseases.

2. A mere ¾- 1” of water a week is sufficient, but when rainfall is on the horizon, let nature do the watering. Without flooding it, soak your grass to promote root stimulation. It’s also important to make sure all parts of the turf have been saturated to prevent unsightly dry patches from forming.

Remember to keep your lawn and yourself hydrated throughout the summer.
