If you are worried about what this could possibly mean for your yard or garden, we are here to help. Whether there is a watering restriction where you live, or you simply are not sure how to prevent the prolonged heat from turning your grass brown, we have you covered. We also want to help you understand what best practices you can follow in order to conserve water. Continue reading below to learn all of this and more.
Consider All of the Water Your Lawn is Getting
The frustrating thing about making a watering plan is that it can change at any time. Mother Nature has her own idea when it comes to how often and for how long your lawn should be watered. In order to figure out how much water your lawn is getting, you can leave a rain gauge device in your yard. This will give you an accurate measurement as to how much rainfall your lawn is getting so that you can make an informed decision regarding whether you need to skip your watering schedule or not.
Find the Right Time to Water
We have talked about this many times in the past but it is important that you pick the right time to water your lawn and continue to water it at that time each day (other than days when rain is falling). As you probably already know, watering in the morning hours or late at night is the best option if you want your lawn to be healthy and lush. When you water at other times throughout the day, you are risking wasting a lot of water since it will evaporate when the sun is shining on it. This will not only increase the amount of water you use over time but it will also leave your lawn struggling to survive as the roots will not be able to become saturated the way they need to.
Make Sure Your Sprinklers are in the Right Place
There is a lot that goes into having a beautiful lawn and this is why you need to have all of your bases covered. You see, even if you are watering the right amount at the right times of day, that doesn’t mean that your sprinklers are positioned in such a way that will allow for your lawn to prosper. Ensuring your sprinklers are placed in the right position is much needed as certain portions of your lawn will need more watering than other areas. Depending on exposure to sunlight and soil density, you could need a lot more watering in one area and a lot less in another. A professional lawn care specialist can give you a better idea of where your sprinklers should be placed for optimal results.
