Dos of watering your lawn:

  1. Water deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth.

  2. Water early in the morning or late in the evening to reduce evaporation.

  3. Adjust sprinkler heads to avoid watering sidewalks, driveways and buildings.

  4. Water newly seeded or sodded lawns more frequently to keep the soil moist.

  5. Check your sprinkler system regularly to ensure even coverage and make any necessary repairs.

Don’ts of watering your lawn:

  1. Don’t water your lawn during the heat of the day when evaporation is highest.

  2. Don’t overwater your lawn, as this can lead to shallow root growth and disease.

  3. Don’t water your lawn on windy days when water can easily be blown away from the intended target.

  4. Don’t water in short bursts, as this can create a hard layer on the surface of the soil that prevents water from reaching the roots.

  5. Don’t ignore signs of drought stress, such as yellowing leaves, and take appropriate action to address it.
