Watering Your Lawn: What You Need to Know

1 Comment

A beautiful lawn can make all the difference in making your property look and feel put together. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing your gorgeous home set against the brilliant green of a healthy yard. A dry, patchy lawn can be hard to look at for both you and your neighbors. It screams neglect and can make even the most seasoned homeowner feel self-conscious about their lawn care skills. 

A well-groomed lawn needs fertilization, have insects controlled, and be free of unwanted pet rest stops. However, the most important step you'll take toward proper lawn care is watering your lawn thoroughly and consistently. We will admit, watering the yard can be a tedious chore that homeowners may be tempted to skip, especially during the rainy season. So how often should you water your yard for maximum grass health and growth? Read on for more information about maximizing your watering time!

 

For a Happy Lawn, Lots of Water is Key!

With the right amount of water, lawn maintenance becomes a snap. Don't wait for the next rainstorm to be proactive about hydrating your lawn. You'll need to pull out the garden hose or set up sprinklers in your front and back yards to ensure that your lawn is getting the maximum amount of much-needed H2O.

If you're finding that your grass is wilting or starting to turn brown and crispy, you have not been watering enough. Lawn health depends upon sufficient water to thrive. Never fear - this problem is easily remedied! Most homeowners who deal with dry, dying grass are watering frequently but not for long enough periods. Not watering for long enough prevents the water from penetrating deeply into the soil.

Keep Your Lawn Drought-Free

To prevent a drought from affecting your lawn, you'll need to increase the time you spend watering your lawn. By allowing the water to sink more deeply into the ground, you will be one step closer to a beautiful, lush yard. If your busy schedule prevents you from spending time outside watering with a hose, set up a sprinkler with a timer to run for a specific period.

You will also want to consider the time of day you water your lawn. If you turn the hose or sprinkler on during the hottest time of the day, you can be sure the water will evaporate before it's able to reach deeper levels of soil. Try to schedule a time to water your lawn in the early morning, which will limit evaporation and give your lawn time to dry during the day.

 

Don't Forget Lawn Nutrients!

Along with plenty of water, lawn upkeep requires you to provide your grass with plenty of nutrients to maximize grass growth.  Nutrients also help keep your lawn's roots healthy! Simple Lawn Solutions’ macronutrient recommendations are just what homeowners need to take the mystery out of lawn care. By combining nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, Simple Lawn Solutions' products will thoroughly nourish your yard and ensure that it remains beautiful and healthy!
