When it comes to lawn mowing and watering, there are important variables such as grass types, soil type, maintenance schedule, climate, temperature, irrigation equipment, temperature, humidity, and wind. While there are guides and tutorials widely available online, experience is still the best mentor to fully understand the basic concept of proper lawn mowing and irrigation. The concepts and principles of proper lawn watering can be understood by knowing your lawn, the climatic conditions in your area, how the irrigation system works, and how your lawn reacts to weather, water, fertilizer, and drainage.
One of the most common questions is, “How often do we need to water the lawn?”. This question is pretty easy to answer, you need to water your lawn when it needs it. If the grass does not bounce back, footprints show, and the grass appears blue-green, your lawn is thirst and needs watering. The fact is grasses don’t really need daily watering. It is not good to just turn on the sprinkler system to water the lawn, you have to give it a thorough soaking. Visually inspect the grass if it is wilting, most especially in hot and dry weather. When your grass looks tired or gets limp, water it or flip on the irrigation system. Performing a “soil moisture test” is helpful. You can do it by pushing a bladed tool, like knife, into the soil, and if it comes our dry and shiny, then this is a good indicator that it needs watering. When watering your lawn, soak the ground and soil up to six inches deep.
Light sprinkling only allow the roots of the grasses to only develop near the surface. Water thoroughly and deeply to push down deeper the root system and helping in developing stronger roots. If you have a deep root system, your grass will absorb water and nutrients. Watering is necessary but avoid flooding your lawn. Don’t apply water too fast so it will not run off the grass. Only water as fast was the lawn can absorb. The factors that affect the duration of watering your lawn includes the water, weather, soil conditions, and the grass type. Always remember that a root system running deep, about 6 inches or more, has a stronger foundation.
