We all know that the best way to keep your lawn fresh and green is by having a watering system in place.

It is of utmost importance to know when you should water your lawn and when you shouldn’t. An over-watered lawn can be just as unsightly as an under-watered one. If you’re unsure, try this easy test method. Just jump on your grass! If the grass springs back up and reshapes itself then you can probably skip the watering. But, if it doesn’t spring back, then it’s a good idea to give it some high quality H2O. Try having your irrigation system set so that your lawn stays properly hydrated and still saves you hundreds of gallons over the course of the year. Be sure to adjust your sprinklers to have an accurate and optimal water spread. If they cover a good area, then you’re going to have a healthy lawn and there won’t be any areas that are over-saturated because two sprinklers hit the same area. If you have any trees in your yard or plants surrounding your landscape, ne sure to place mulch or gravel around them. That way once they are watered, there will be less evaporation and more water stored for the tree, helping save water at the same time.
Obviously, many lawn owners may not always have the time to focus so much on their lawn.
