Helpful Lawn Care Tips
Watering properly is much more an art than a science and the most important tool in making your lawn look it’s best. When watering turf, run your sprinklers so the soil is wet three to four inches deep. Normally, this should create enough reserve moisture in the soil that you will not need to water again for two to four days depending upon rainfall amounts, if any. It is best to water a lawn heavily and infrequently between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. One common mistake with irrigation systems is that too much water is applied every day, which can lead to disease problems during the summer.
Look for early signs of wilt and dehydration to determine when your lawn needs water. Common indicators include a bluish-green color, curling grass blades and footprints that remain on the lawn. Most lawns in the Boise, Idaho area require about an 2 to 3 inches of water per week depending on the season. If you’re unsure of how long to water, put a mark one inch from the bottom of several plastic containers and spread them around the watering zone. Clock the time it takes to reach the one-inch mark and water for that length of time in the future.
To determine the soil moisture depth, use a screwdriver or a garden trowel. Push it into the soil and if you meet little resistance, then the soil is wet. If it does not push easily into the soil, then additional water will be needed.
