green_grassWe all know the importance of regular watering to ensure your lawn looks its best, but when and how often should you water your lawn?

Your lawn doesn’t need as much water as you may think. Watering for just 15 minutes two or three times per week will encourage your grass to grow deeper roots producing a healthier, hardier lawn.

Ideally, watering should be done before 10am or after 5.30pm.  Early morning watering will allow the soil to retain moisture whilst taking advantage of the grass’ normal growing cycle.

Water restrictions still apply, and as such the use of fixed sprinklers are not permitted between 10am and 5pm.

Don’t forget your garden beds! Applying mulch reduces the amount of water lost by as much as 75%, which will mean healthier plants requiring less water.
