Watering your lawn is one of the best ways to keep it lush and green all summer long. However, it’s not quite that easy. There are some basic mistakes that commonly get in the way of achieving your goal of a green lawn.
Here are a few things to keep an eye out for this summer:
• Watering when it’s too hot: When you do this, a good portion of the water evaporates before it reaches the roots. As a result, it’s not nearly as effective.
• Watering hard surfaces: Make sure the water is actually hit the lawn, not the street, sidewalk, or hardscapes around your property.
• Watering too often: It’s a mistake to water your lawn for a few minutes a day, as it can result in shallow roots. Do your lawn a favor by watering it for roughly one hour once or twice a week.
These are the most common mistakes that people make when watering their lawn. If you’re able to avoid these, you have a greater chance of keeping your grass looking its best all summer long.
