Taking care of your lawn and yard can be a lot of work. After getting a new yard installed by Express Landscape Products, it may be overwhelming to know how to best take care of it. Here are a few tips on how to water your lawn and yard.
How Often to Water
People often struggle with how often and how much they should water their lawns. You should be watering your lawn three times a week for about 20-30 minutes.
Times of Day to Water
When you water your plants in the middle of the day when the sun is out and shining bright, the water will evaporate quickly. The water will not even have time to soak in and give your plants the moisture that you need. When you water your plants in the morning or evening, the sun will not evaporate the water and your plants will have plenty of time to absorb the moisture. Make sure not to water too late in the evening or you can risk fungus growing overnight.
Be Careful Not to Overwater
Giving your yard too much water can be just as damaging as not enough water. Drowning your plants with too much water can kill them. If it is raining a lot, make sure to shut off your sprinkler system.
By following these tips, you can have a better chance of having that picture perfect lawn. Feel free to spot treat areas that look like they are dying. If you have any questions call Express Landscape Products for your landscaping needs.
