3. If water runs off your lawn before 1 inch is applied, turn off the water and let it soak in before continuing.

4. The best time to water is early morning between 4:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. which helps to prevent diseases.

5. Reduce the stress on your lawn during very hot weather by watering each zone for 5 to 10 minutes.


Three things you should know

1. Mowing is beneficial for your lawn. It reduces the workload on a grass plant’s root system. You’re trimming away the oldest part of the plant because grass grows from the bottom up.

2. Grass clippings provide mulch and filter into the turf helping to keep moisture in.

3. Follow the 1/3 rule. Never remove more than one-third of the grass blade at each cutting. This will shade the roots and help increase a deeper root system
