Maintain Your Lawn with Less Water

Hey everyone! Each day this week we’ll be looking at a home maintenance/improvement challenge and its solution. Today, we’re going to get started with your lawn and how to keep it green with less water.

As we all know, it has been an incredibly hot, dry summer across America – some states are even in the middle of severe droughts. We all need to do our best not to waste water, and there’s a great website right here with some wonderful conservation tips. Another thing you can do to both save water and keep your lawn healthy is to not water it during the day.

If you water your lawn during the day, you’ll be losing a significant amount of water due to evaporation. To avoid this, you should water your lawn in the early morning, between 4 and 9 A.M. You may also want to consider letting your lawn go dormant during these hot summer months. To read more about healthy lawn practices and how to safely let your yard go dormant, follow the links below.
