When should turfgrass be watered?
Most of the grasses require about one inch of water per week when they are actively growing. Either watch your own rain gage, or watch the weatherman and keep up with how much rain has fallen for the past week. If more than one-half inch has fallen, don't water. If no rain has fallen, add one inch of water. Try to water only once a week, one inch at a time.
The new year is a great time to start learning about topics you don’t know much about.
Early fall is one of the best times to test your soil. A soil test can tell you if your lawn or garden needs critical nutrients and how much. This way, your plants and your wallet will stay healthy. You won’t waste your money applying fertilizer or lime that your plants don’t need.
