With spring here, it’s not too early to start thinking about how you’re going to revitalize your lawn back to the luscious green sight that you remember.
We Make Lawn Sprinkling And Lawn Care Easy For You
Watering your lawn with Capital Sprinkling’s lawn sprinkler systems has never been easier! Here are a few extra tips to save you time and money:
- An Inch Will Do: Most lawns only need about an inch of watering per week. Overwatering your lawn can lead to fungus, disease, and overall poor health for your grass. If you’re not sure if your lawn needs watering, step onto the grass: If you leave marks, it’s time to water.
- Rise and Shine: Watering your lawn in the morning is the most ideal and effective time for generous consumption. To reduce evaporation, watering during the coolest part of the day (usually the morning), will allow for more water to sink into the ground.
- Aim and Fire: While we always make sure that our lawn sprinkler instillation is exact and ideal for your lawn, a check-up never hurts. Make sure your lawn sprinklers are aimed at your lawn, and not the sidewalk or street. Feel free to give us a call if you feel that your sprinklers may need any adjustments!
- Don’t Be Wasteful: If you notice that your water is starting to runoff the grass and into the sidewalk or street, it’s time for a modification. This problem creates a lot of water waste, and is especially detrimental during a drought. If you see this happening, turn off your sprinklers, let your lawn absorb the water, and then monitor or minimize the amount of watering you do in the future.
- Say No to Weeds: Giving your lawn a quick, shallow taste of water encourages weed growth. Water that sits near your grass is more susceptible to diseases and excess weeds. Make sure that you are watering deep and long enough to infiltrate to the roots.
- Skip A Day: While each watering should be thorough enough to soak into the roots of the soil, this does not mean you need to water your lawn everyday. By watering a few times a week, the lawn is allotted time to dry, keeping the roots stronger and encouraging them to grow deeper.
- Rethink your Landscape: If drought is a persistent issue, it may be time to rearrange. By placing plants, trees, and other foliage in groups that all require similar water consumption, you can help eliminate drought. Make sure to check with your local garden center for plants that are less susceptible to drought.
