With the summer heat in full effect, it’s important to pay close attention to the health of your lawn.
As a general rule of thumb, your lawn needs approximately one to two inches of water per week in order to remain healthy.
With enough rain in your local area, you may never have to turn your attention to other methods of watering your lawn. However, as you know, there are times when it doesn’t rain for days on end. In this case, here are some of the best ways to water your lawn:
- Sprinkler system. With this, you don’t have to worry about disrupting your schedule to water your lawn. Instead, you can set the system to do the work for you.
- Portable sprinklers. This is the most cost effective way to water your grass. All you have to do is buy the right sprinkler, attach it to your hose, and turn on the water at the right time of the day. Tip: make sure you’re watering your entire yard, not just some of it.
- Rotary and oscillating sprinklers. Both of these are popular among homeowners, giving you the opportunity to water a large area in a short period of time. This makes for more efficient watering.
There will be times when there is enough rain in the forecast to keep your lawn looking its best. There will also be times when you have to use one of the methods above to water your lawn. Make sure you’re ready for anything that comes your way this summer!
