Smart Tips for Watering Your Lawn

As a South Carolina homeowner, you know how important it is to keep your yard looking healthy and green year-round. One of the things you can do to accomplish this goal is to have proper watering techniques that you adjust accordingly to the time of year, rainfall and other factors. There is much more involved with watering your lawn than just setting a timer on your sprinkler system. When you know how to water your yard properly, you can be sure that you are protecting your investment and ensuring your grass is in good health.

Grass needs proper watering at all times of the year. One of the simplest yet most effective ways to ensure that your grass is healthy is to pay attention to the signs shown by your yard regarding the amount of water it needs at any specific time. As you consider your watering techniques and things you can do to keep your yard as healthy as possible, the following tips may be helpful:

  • If you do not have a sprinkler system installed in your yard, buy a tripod with an impact sprinkler. This will get water to all parts of your grass.
  • When you put down grass seed, make sure you are getting it in the right place, then water those seeds regularly.
  • Check the moisture in your soil to determine if your current watering techniques are working.
  • Keep in mind that different parts of your yard may need different amounts of water to remain healthy.
  • Monitor your grass for signs of poor health, grubs, fungus or other things that could impact the overall health of your grass.
