Additionally, roots need air as much as water. When your turf is saturated with water there is no air; therefore, the roots rot. Hence the importance of drying time between watering cycles.
Irrigation time varies from property to property and turf type. For example, at our personal home, we have St. Augustine grass and we have not watered our lawn for about one month….and the lawn looks great! However, depending on your turf type and property needs, your lawn may require more irrigation.
After evaluating the condition of your lawn, the question should NOT be, “Am I watering enough?” BUT “Am I watering correctly?”
