Lawn mowing and irrigation involve considering important factors such as maintenance schedule, climate, temperature, grass types, soil type, irrigation equipment, temperature, wind, and humidity. While it is true that there are a lot of online resources available right now, experience is still the best mentor in fully understanding the concepts and principles 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.
How should you often water your lawn? In a logical sense, a lawn requires watering when it shows signs of thirst. If ever your grass does not bounce back, the soil starts to dry out, the grass appears blue-green, or footprints show, your lawn requires watering. Grasses don’t really need daily watering. Thoroughly soak your lawn rather than just turning on the sprinklers providing some water. Visually inspect the grass if it is wilting, most especially in hot and dry weather. If you notice that the grasses look tired or appear to get limp, water your lawn or flip on the irrigation system. Conduct a “soil moisture test”. 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. Water your lawn thoroughly until the soil is soaked four to six inches deep.
A light water sprinkling only encourages the superficial development of the root system. Push the roots deeper and develop stronger roots by deep and thorough watering. By having a deeper root system, more nutrients and water are absorbed. Do not flood your lawn. Don’t apply water too fast so it will not run off the grass. Water your lawn as fast as it can. The important factors affecting the length of time your lawn needs to be watered include grass type, soil conditions, water, and the weather. A root system that is deep, about 6 inches or more possesses a stronger foundation.
