A lawn’s health depends on more than just regular mowing. It also requires regular watering to ensure the grass has a consistent supply of moisture. This will help prevent dry, brittle grass that is more susceptible to mold and bacteria and more likely to be damaged by mower blades or other lawn equipment. A regular schedule of soil aeration, fertilizing and weed control will also make your lawn healthy and attractive.

The frequency of watering will vary depending on the weather and season. For example, it may be necessary to water more frequently in the summer when temperatures are hotter, but less often during cooler seasons. A general rule is to water deeply and infrequently, rather than lightly and more often, as deep watering encourages root growth that is better able to resist drought conditions.

Whether your grass needs to be watered will also depend on the type of soil you have. Some types of soil, like sandy or clay, hold onto water more than other types, such as silt and loam. A soil test can reveal the proportions of sand, silt and clay in your lawn’s dirt to help you determine how often you should water.

When you water, it is best to do so early in the morning. This will minimize evaporation, allow the ground to dry before evening and help prevent fungal diseases that thrive in moist environments. It is important to monitor rainfall, however, and not water the lawn if rain is predicted for later in the day.

The amount of time you spend watering will also depend on the size of your yard and how often you use it for entertaining, play, pets or other purposes. If you have an average-sized yard, a thorough watering once or twice per week for about 30 minutes should suffice in most areas of the country. A larger yard may require more frequent watering, especially in hotter climates. If you are watering for a specific purpose, such as fertilizing, water in the early morning to avoid washing away the nutrients. This will also reduce the amount of fungicide
