Tips for a Healthy Lawn & Garden

Timing Is Everything

Water either in the early morning or evening to minimize water lost to evaporation. Watering in the early morning will allow your lawn to dry thoroughly in the sun during the day, preventing an overly saturated yard.

Know The Soil

Make sure you plant grass (or plants) that will thrive and tolerate your zone, light exposure, and soil type. Regular soil tests throughout the season will help you determine if your grass is getting what it needs.

Am I Watering Enough?

Lawns generally need about an inch of water a week to encourage roots to grow further into the ground. This makes them more resistant to a dry spell. Aim for watering no more than three times a week, but it's best to use a rain gauge to keep track of rainfall, so you know how much water your lawn needs.

Water Deep

Water newly seeded or over-seeded areas until they are established. Remember, water deeply, not just on the surface. This allows roots to develop below the surface, and they won't dry out as much in the summer heat. After 30 – 60 minutes of watering, check the depth of penetration in the soil in several locations.

Prep Your Hoses

Check your hoses and valves for leaks. Consider updating your current setup with quick-change fittings, splitters, and helpful hose racks to make watering a breeze.

Keep It Tight 

Make adjustments so that water falls only on your lawn or garden and is not wasted on sidewalks, roads, or buildings.
