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.Back
