If there is no rain, the lawn should be watered twice a week, with 10 to 15 millimetres each time. If the grass keeps getting insufficient amounts of water, the root system is forced to the surface where the water is and consequently the grass becomes even more sensitive to drought. Use a rain gauge to check how much water has gone on your lawn. Also, adapt the rate of water supply to the soil type the lawn is based on, making sure that the water has time to sink in while watering is underway.
A sprinkling system is an easy and comfortable way to keep your garden hydrated. Sprinklers can be fixed in the ground, put on stands or travelling across the lawn during watering. If you connect your sprinklers to a watering computer, you can even leave on a holiday knowing your lawn and plants will be taken care of.
Many lawns have spots that require more water then the rest of the lawn. Install a rain barrel and use the harvested water to water these spots by hand.
