Watering Schedules

Like any plant, lawns need regular water, sunlight, and nutrients to grow. If your lawn isn’t getting the water it needs regularly, it will start to get dry and brown. To prevent this, talk to a landscaping company about finding the best watering schedule for your lawn. Different types of grass need different types of water, so it’s best to get expert help when it comes to deciding on a watering schedule. Once you know how often you need to water your lawn and for how long, all you have to do is make sure you keep up with watering.

Sunlight and Watering

Watering your lawn in the morning is best for residential lawn care because it gives your lawn plenty of time to absorb water, then dry out throughout the day. Evening watering can also be good, but it may lead to fungus growth and rotting if your lawn doesn’t dry out at night. Daytime watering is never recommended.

Installing a Sprinkler System

When it comes to commercial lawn care, a sprinkler system is the best way to make sure your lawn is always getting enough water. You can install a sprinkler system and program it to fit your watering schedule, so your lawn is never getting too little or too much water. A sprinkler system from Monarch Landscaping & Garden Center can also make plant and tree care easier since it provides water to a large area and keeps the soil moist.

Lawn Maintenance

In addition to watering your lawn, it’s important to do a little lawn and tree maintenance now and then. You should do your best to keep weeds out of your lawn, and you can keep your lawn from creeping into gardens by edging it with a trimmer. For most Springfield, IL, home, and business owners, it’s best to hire a landscaper to take care of things like edging, weed removal, and pruning trees.

Professional Help

If you’ve tried these tips and you’re still having trouble keeping your lawn green, there could be something else going on. Poor lawn health can be caused by fungus or rotting, improper mowing, or a lack of water. It’s best to have a professional diagnose your lawn if you’re struggling to keep it green.
