Irrigate Properly

Posted by B & B Maintenance on May 21, 2009 at 10:21 PM

When you water your lawn, water it only in the morning. The best timeto water is between 6:00 and 9:00 am. Winds are usually low,temperatures are usually cool and the sun has not risen high enough tospeed evaporation. Thus, the water percolates into the soil rather thanevaporating (afternoon watering) or lying on the grass´ surface(evening watering). Evening watering on a regular basis is asking fortrouble. Fungi thrive on cool temps and moisture.
