The Right Way To Water

Posted on April 3rd, 2017 by Jupiter Tequesta

Water is vital to the health of our lawns, but water is a very limited resource, especially in the humid state of Florida. Yet people water too much, too often, at the wrong times, and the wrong way. Here are a few steps to follow to make sure you’re irrigating your property properly.

The Right Way To Water | Plumbers | Jupiter | Jupiter-Tequesta |

Water In The A.M.
Water evaporates too quickly in the middle of the day and clings to the blades of grass in the evening, causing fungus and other lawn problems. Water your lawn early in the morning – around 4 a.m. to 6 a.m. – when the air is cooler and the breeze is lighter.

Soak The Soil
Water your lawn long enough to moisten the soil about 6 inches deep. Every lawn is different, so the time it takes for the water to make it’s way to the roots may vary.

Water Twice A Week
The less water, the better. Too much watering can lead to fungus and a shallow root system. The key is to water deeply (6 inches) and water infrequently.
