When And How Much To Water Your Lawn

General Irrigation Lawn Care Tips

When The Temperatures Are: Under Normal Conditions: Windy / Low Humidity: Watering Times Per Week:
70°- 75° 1″ 1¼” 1 – 2
75°- 80° 1″ – 1¼” 1½” 2 – 3
80°- 85° 1½” 1½” – 2″ 3 – 4
85°- 90° 1½” – 2″ 2″ – 2¼” 3 – 5
Over 90° 2″ – 2¼” 2″ – 3″ 4 – 6

It is important to keep in mind that shaded conditions, sunny areas and spaces that get a lot of reflected heat off of patios and driveways require different amounts of water.

How To Measure

Set out 3-4 straight-sided containers and learn how long it takes to collect 1/2″ of water. This time period should serve as a guide each time you need to water your lawn. Once you have the correct timing, water one to six times each week.

  • If you overwater your lawn, much of the water is never absorbed. Water multiple times in short periods and take 15-minute breaks between sessions.
  • Different plants need different amounts of water. Divide your property into separate irrigation zones so that your grass and trees receive different amounts of water.
  • Adjust sprinklers so you are only watering what grows instead of concrete areas like your patio or driveway.
  • Applying water directly to the roots using low-volume drip irrigation reduces water waste and prevents unwanted weeds.
  • Routinely check your sprinklers to ensure they are working properly.
  • Adjust your irrigation system each season and during weather changes, or install a shut-off device that detects rain.

Tips To Prevent Turf Disease

Water Your Lawn

Watering late in the day causes fungal growth, so only water in the morning and only when your lawn needs to be hydrated.

Aerate Your Lawn

Aerating your lawn at least once a year, when roots are actively growing in the fall or spring, helps prevent turf diseases.

Mow Your Lawn

Your grass should be cut at the highest recommended setting during the summer to protect the stems from heavy sunlight. Cutting it too short often causes disease. Dull mower blades also shred grass and expose the turf’s tissue, allowing disease spores to enter more easily.

Fertilize Your Lawn

Apply the appropriate amount of fertilizer. Some lawn diseases are a result of too much nitrogen during fertilization.

Use Fungicides

Preventive applications of fungicides are always better than treating a massive outbreak. Take a proactive rather than reactive approach.
