Want an amazing green lawn this coming spring? Want to be the envy of the neighborhood?
The first step is aeration and over seeding, but a simple step following that is to remember to water the lawn. Something so simple will keep that lawn amazing into the spring. It’s important to keep in mind that lawn care is a partnership between you and your lawn care company. While your lawn care company will do their part in providing you with the best aeration methods and high quality seed and necessary nutrients, it’s critical that you do your part as well by watering your lawn. Otherwise, it’s likely that you won’t see the results you’re hoping for.
New grass plants don’t have the root systems of an established lawn. Therefore, new grass needs more attention until it matures, which can take anywhere from six to nine months. During this time, it’s critical that you water your lawn, and once you start watering, it needs to be consistently continued. If you stop watering your lawn, the new grass could dry out and die.
When it comes to proper watering techniques, always use a sprinkler system rather than standing and spraying areas with a hose. Sprinklers give slow, even amounts of water to all areas of the lawn and don’t runoff as easily. As you water your lawn, stay off tender areas as much as possible, especially during the first few weeks when new shoots are germinating or when the soil is soft.
