The heat of the summer can scorch a once green lawn and can, unfortunately, kill off your plants. Without proper watering, a splotchy yard of brown grass spots may seem imminent. However, that does not have to be the case. Below are some great techniques to maintain your perfect lawn from Easy Green Landscaping contractor services in Seattle.
These are a few techniques on how to keep a healthy lawn during the summer months:
- Healthy lawns are created from even water distribution. Along with even water distribution, it is essential to water your grass in intervals. Allow your lawn to completely dry out between your watering times.
- The best time of day to water your grass is early in the morning. The reason being is that there is less evaporation due to the heat. There is also a better chance for the water to penetrate the soil and less possible run-off.
- It typically takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes to water the yard thoroughly to allow water to fully penetrate the soil. In the event of run-offs or puddles, it would be best to turn your watering system off for a few minutes.
- Your watering system should not be applying water faster than it can be absorbed by the soil. If the watering system is dispersing the water too quickly, then you will need to adjust the amount of water applied, the timing of the application, or both.
