Water Grass In Lawns
How to water grass in lawn is a common question raised by many gardeners. To get an attractive lawn to provide great green colors and make you relax, you need to apply adequate water on it. There are some strategies which you can use to maximize your watering effects with as small amount of water possible.
The first thing you should keep in mind is that you should only apply water to your lawn when they need it. This is not only for preserving water, but to guarantee the health of the grasses. Overwatering should be avoided since it increases the risk of getting infected by fungus and other grass diseases. Different species of grasses require different amount of water used for growth. The amount of water used for lawn is also determined by other conditions like humidity, temperature, sunlight and so on. When the grass need more water, some leaves will show curl appearing on the side.
You also need to provide a way to do the deep watering to suppress the growth of weeds. Shallow water usually causes the grass roots to be located in a shallow place. This makes the grasses easy to be infected by some diseases. Some deep watering will encourage the grass roots to enter into a deeper location. To fulfill the deep watering, the amount of water should be adequate to make them penetrate into the soil. You can also dig a hole into the soil to check how deep the root already gets through.
If you are using some automatic sprinklers to provide water for your lawn, you should pick up some cool time to do the sprinkling like in the morning. This can decrease the loss of water due to the high temperature and strong winds. Usually, it is cool in the morning and the wind is relatively mild, making it a great choice for sprinkling.
