If you have had a chance to read our last blog, then you already know that there is a right way and a wrong way to water your lawn. At Mesa Turf Masters, we provide the best lawn care services in Vail, because we want to help you to get the best results! However, we know that what you do to your lawn is just as important as what we do to it. That is why we have come up with a few more tips to help you to water your lawn the right way:
- Water in the morning – The morning is the best time of the day to water your lawn. In the morning, the air is cooler, which ensures that the water will get to your soil instead of being evaporated. Many people try to water in the evenings, but you should know that if your grass is damp overnight, it will be more prone to disease, so the morning really is your best bet.
- Water deeper, but less often – Shallow watering encourage shallow root growth. The best way to encourage your lawn’s roots to grow big and strong is by watering deeply, but less often.
- Pay attention to the kind of soil you have – Different kinds of soil will absorb water differently. For example, soil that is on the sandier side will quickly soak up water, while clay soils will take a lot longer to soak up the water.
Watering alone isn’t enough. You need to know how to water the right way in order for it to benefit your lawn the most! Do you have questions or concerns about watering? If so, don’t hesitate to call!
