How To Prevent Lawn Problems Through Proper Watering

We can help to prevent lawn problems through the provision of a maintenance program entailing:

  • Weed and pest control.
  • Aeration of the soil.
  • Composting.
  • Fertilization.
  • Ensuring proper drainage.
  • Assisting with hardscaping.
  • Construction of retainer walls.
  • Providing top dressing.
  • Giving advice regarding mowing.
  • Providing information about proper watering.

One of the ways to prevent lawn problems is to properly water the lawn at the correct intervals and ensuring that you don’t over or under water the lawn. If you want to have a lush green lawn throughout the year you should not allow the grass to turn brown or become dormant and then water it. Every time the dormancy is interrupted, the grass will require additional nutrients as it will use up its food resources.

Knowing when to water is essential if you are to prevent lawn problems. As a rule of thumb, you can water the lawn as soon as footprints are visible after you have walked on the grass. If you water the lawn too often, the roots will stay shallow. You don’t want the ground to be saturated all the time. Rather water well and not every day. Once or twice a week will normally be enough if you want to prevent lawn problems, unless you stay in a very dry area.

Don’t water the lawn in the middle of the day as it will simply mean water lost. If you can, rather water early morning than late night. Diseases tend to get a hold with night watering unless you also apply weed and pest control. Never flood one area of the lawn while another part stays dry. If you want the grass to grow evenly and have the same strength you need to ensure that the whole lawn gets enough water. Contact us today to help you prevent lawn problems.
