Commonly asked questions when it comes to landscaping are: “When do I water my landscape/how often should it be watered?” and “How much does it need to be watered?” Having an effective irrigation system along with watering wisely can help attain quality results. There are several factors that come into play when it comes to watering, such as weather conditions, landscape type, type of soil being used, as well as sun/shade exposure. Retrieving samples of your lawn and having it tested for its pH levels is one method used to help identify whether the soils pH levels need to be adjusted. During the drier seasons, such as the spring season and summer, your landscape may require up to 1 ½ inches of water. Better results are achieved when the soil is damp from 4-6 inches deep, paying close attention to any dry spots on your lawn and being careful as to not over water. The best time to water your lawn is when the sun is not directly on your landscape, such as early mornings or late afternoons. If watering is done when the sun hits its peak during the day it can cause evaporation, as a result your landscape may dry out because it is not receiving the proper water to help nourish it. In order to achieve quality results you must constantly observe your landscape to recognize any dryness or damage occurring.
