Of course, you want to keep your lawn beautiful, so it’s important to know when and why you need to water your grass.
First, you’re probably watering too much. Watering a lot to prevent your lawn drying out seems obvious but it’s backward. Watering your lawn every day is like spoiling your child with gifts every day – it can stunt development! Grass that is watered too often will develop a shallow root system, making it vulnerable if you forget to water it for a day or two or a heatwave hits. Overwatering can also leave your lawn unpleasant and damp, and afflict your grass with oxygen deprivation, disease, and weeds.
Keeping your garden-fresh through a hot dry summer is a lot easier with a bit of planning. The first step is to make sure the water supply is handy, either in butts or by having an outside tap installed – it saves so much effort.
If you already have a tap, you can put in an adaptable automatic irrigation system from Preferred Lawn Care. You just plug it in at the tap and can position a choice of attachments exactly where you want them, from drip sets and mini-sprays to special irrigation for pots and oscillating sprinklers for larger areas.
It’s always tricky keeping the garden watered while you’re away on a summer holiday. When you put in plants, go for drought-tolerant varieties if you think you might not always remember to water.
Garden irrigation systems are fast becoming the must-have addition for gardens throughout Michigan. Irrigation systems in Muskegon are automatic by design and take the leg work out of watering the garden, freeing up the time gardeners would have usually spent watering their plants. The other excellent benefit of using an irrigation system from Preferred Lawn Care is the efficiency. A reduction of up to 90% can be achieved by using an irrigation system instead of using the traditional garden hose.
You’ll never have to drag a hose all over the yard, never have to figure out if you’ve applied enough or too much water and you’ll never have to worry about watering the lawn while you’re away.
