The A.M. is the best time to water the lawn because the air is cooler and there's usually not much wind to blow the droplets. In the middle of the day, water evaporates too quickly. In the evenings, water can cling to the blades of grass overnight, which can cause lawn diseases.
How long should you water to get one inch? We can't tell you that, because we don't know what kind of sprinkler you have or what your water pressure is like. With automatic sprinklers, it's usually one hour. But you can measure that yourself. Just get a tuna can, which is 1" tall, (eat the tuna out of it, first) and place it where your sprinkler is hitting. Run your sprinkler and see how· long it takes to get a half inch of water in the can - just like a rain gauge. Usually it's about 30 minutes. So 30 minutes, 2 times per week will get an inch of water on your lawn, and 30 minutes 3 times per week will get 1 ½" down. Bear in mind that during extreme heat, you will need to water more, due to evaporation and heat stress on the grass.
Mowing 3.5" tall and mulching is a great way to reduce water from evaporating. This is Key.
Green grass only near sprinkler heads is key example of not watering long enough.
We suggest Grub Control to prevent grubs and grub damage and Fall Core Aeration during the typical season for best results. Please call for more details.
For years, golf courses have known that the secret to a beautiful, dense turf is to aerate their courses up to three times each year.
What is Core Aeration?
Core Aeration is the process of making thousands of small holes in the turf. These holes allow fertilizer, water and air to reach the root zone quicker, resulting in new growth and increased root development.
These holes also open up the soil and help reduce thatch build up and soil compaction, allowing your lawn to breathe and grow.
Action Lawn Service is your local Core Aeration experts. We suggest aeration at least once a year. We also can use this time to overseed your lawn with our hybrid drought and disease resistant seed.
