When should I water my lawn?
This question is best answered by finding out what stage your lawn is currently in. If you have just seeded a new lawn, or it is in an infant growing stage, you should keep your seedbed moist at all times. Achieving the right amount of moisture is sometimes a tricky thing. You should not water the lawn with heavy amounts of water on an infrequent basis to keep it moist. When you use a heavy amount of water, you can disrupt the placement of the seeds and thwart proper growth. Instead, you should water the seedbed about four times a day, if you can, with a light watering that mimics a misty or light rain. You should never have puddles that form in your seedbed.
After the grass has begun to grow and you’ve cut it the first time, you can begin to shift from the four times a day, light water schedule to a less frequent, but harder watering that ensures that the water gets down to the turf’s root system to promote and stimulate growth. You should not have run-off that forms from your watering. Grass is best watered during this time, in the morning hours. If you water the grass in the evenings, you will not have enough time for the grass to properly dry and you could promote a disease growth environment.
