Summer Turf Stress

#WarnesHelpfulHints – Summer Turf Stress


Now is the time to increase watering frequency as well as the amount applied. This will aid in maintaining the overall health and vigor of your lawn throughout the growing season.

Deep infrequent waterings are better than light frequent sprinklings. Use a rain gauge to check the output of your sprinkler zones and individual heads to ensure even watering. The average weekly amount of water should be 1 inch per week from May to mid-June and should increase to 1.5 inches per week throughout the summer months.
