If you haven’t tried increasing the amount of time you water your grass, this is an obvious first step. Remember though, watering in the evening hours is not advised because moist grass sitting in the nighttime hours can lead to disease in your lawn. Watering during the middle of the day, especially during our warmest months, is not advised either as most of the water evaporates before it can soak into the ground. Programming your sprinkler system to water in the early hours of the morning is best. We recommend simply increasing your watering time by 5-10 minutes for each zone to start during times of drought or extreme heat.
Don’t have an automatic sprinkler system? It is nearly impossible to keep your grass healthy and green without regular watering. While you can work to be diligently moving a singular sprinkler head around your lawn, this can be tedious and result in your grass getting either too much or too little water. Automatic irrigation systems can certainly be expensive, but they end up helping to save time, the environment, and money.
