How much water does my lawn need?

Water is the single most important thing you can feed your lawn. To encourage strong healthy roots your lawn will require a minimum of 2.5 to 4 cm of water weekly. Of course this does vary depending on your soil type and how much direct sunlight your lawn receives. Generally though watering for 20 minutes once or twice a week will be sufficient especially when combined with rainfall. While not watering enough will cause your lawn to dry out and possibly go dormant, over watering can also cause a lot of issues such as fungus and other turf disease. As for the best time to water? Early morning is best, mid day can burn your grass and evening creates a better chance of fungus growth.

  • Great Service Calgary North
    As retirees who now travel, we need to be able to trust those who look after our home and yard. Kory and his staff did an amazing job, and for a very fair price. After we returned from a vacation our neighbors shared that Kory and his team completed the snow shoveling exactly as was scheduled; even on the bitterly cold days! We will continue to hire Kory each time we are on vacation.
