Studies have shown that most lawns only need to be watered once every 3 to 4 days to stay healthy and green. Watering everyday creates shallow roots. Watering infrequently develops deep roots and healthier turf.
A healthy lawn comes from: Aeration, this can help improve water and air movement to roots, Fertilization, doing this to frequently or at the wrong times can create extra stress on the lawn, Mowing Height, set the blade so that you keep the grass at a height of 3 inches, and watching the Sprinkler Clock, prevent water waste by adjusting your clock monthly.
Always avoid watering during the heat of the day, from 10am to 6pm. This reduces evaporation loss by 15 to 20 percent.
