It’s hot and it’s been a long, long time since we’ve seen rain which means at Village Green we’ve been doing a lot of Plano sprinkler repairs. We have seen large areas of lawns and sometimes the entire lawn completely brown from lack of water. What should you do if your lawn has been under watered?
Imagine setting a bucket of water in your lawn If you don’t add the same amount of water each week that it has lost from sitting out in the sun eventually you won’t have much water left. If you want to refill the bucket you’re going to have to add more water each week than it is losing but not so much that the water just slops over the edge and spills everywhere.
You want to do the same thing with your sprinkler system. If you’ve been under-watering the water table in your soil has moved so low that the roots of your lawn can’t reach the water. If you add about 25% to your watering each week, you will gradually move the water table up to the level of your roots. Do this for two or three weeks and then each week you can drop 5% from your schedule. Follow this schedule and, assuming good sun and good fertilizing (using Village Green of course), you’ll be surprised at how quickly you’ll start seeing results.
