watering question

8 posts in this topic

We haven't had rain since for a very long time....early June I think? Now it's been over 100 for several days with no relief in sight. Aside from the obvious solution (move back north!) how often does one water and when?

1" per week. Water early in the day (daybreak is good) and water deep (long and slow instead of short and shallow). Keep your grass fairly long (3").

If your lawn has gone dormant, I would just save your money and wait it out. If its still alive then you can make a difference.

I dind't know they had lawns in Texas. Why is a guy from Texas asking lawn questions on a Minnesota based fishing forum?

Tom7227,

There's nothing wrong with asking questions...I would take a guess and say that Doop used to live up here in the midwest. I dont see any harm in asking for other people's opinion!

Yes there's lawns in Texas!

I'm wondering what kinda turf is it? Bermuda, St Augustine, rye? Seems to me I'd ask around how to treat your species in your environs.
