Water Management
When it comes to taking care of your lawn, one of the most important maintenance practices is also one of the most basic. Watering. It is important to remember that there is no such thing as a perfect sprinkler system. Be on the look-out for dry spots that may need extra watering which is best done with a portable sprinkler on the end of the hose.

Quantity
 
Each watering must go to a depth of 2 1/2" - 3" depending on the weather as needed. Light waterings that merely dampen the grass are of little benefit and can actually harm your lawn. Place an empty coffee can or bucket on your lawn to determine how long it takes to apply the needed inches of water. There is no such thing as the perfect sprinkler system. There will be times when a movable sprinkler is needed in different areas.

Very early morning watering is ideal. Watering during the middle of the day, when the weather tends to be the hottest and driest, can waste water due to excessive evaporation.

Evening watering tends to promote disease problems. Keep in mind, the key to efficient watering is to give your lawn enough moisture to reach the deep roots of the grass plants.

A couple more tips.....

During the summer months, it's a good idea to water your lawn the day before you mow and then try to mow during the coolest part of the day. This minimizes the browning effect of summer mowing and decreases the time it takes the turf to heal.

Mow your lawn as it needs it. Never remove more than one-third of the leaf blade at any one time. And, by all means, keep the mower blade sharpened. This is very important because it means you are actually cutting the blades of grass, not merely ripping and shredding them.
