How To Determine How Much Water Your Lawn Needs

All plants require some water during the growing season and lawn grasses are no exception. The ideal watering schedule should be based on the current growing season and recent rainfall from mother nature.

Most lawns will typically require around 1.5 inches of water per week to keep them on the cutting edge. This could be a combination of rainfall and your watering efforts. The ideal situation is to monitor the recent rainfall in your area so that you can determine if and how much watering is needed.

As a general rule, watering every other day for 20 minutes in the early morning is suggested. However, soil condition and structure (sand or clay) lawns growing in full sun or shade, lawn type, and lawn density may all determine whether your lawn requires more or less water.
