Do you want a healthier, greener lawn? Good watering habits will help.
Just like physical conditioning helps the human body fight off stress and disease, a strong, conditioned root systems helps plants do the same. Water established lawns deeply and less frequently (once every three to five days to a soil depth of 6″).
This conditions roots to grow deeper to find water where soil temperatures are cooler, moisture levels are more consistent and where the roots will be less susceptible to drying out or baking during periods of hot, dry weather. This applies even to lawns under automatic irrigation systems.
