Lawn Watering Tips For Chicagoland Homeowners

A question we hear all the time being a landscape professional is, “What is the right way to water my lawn?” It isn’t rocket science but it isn’t hard to damage or kill your lawn by overwatering or not watering enough. Finding the middle ground is the way to support a lush and healthy lawn.   How much water?First of all realize that your lawn needs 1-1.5” of water weekly in order to stay healthy and green. Now if your area is receiving storms about once or twice a month keep the watering to about 1” a week but if your area is going through a drought or minimal rain, you definitely need 1.5” of water regardless.  Just because you have a sprinkler system installed within your property doesn’t mean you should run it every single day. Not taking the watering advice from your local landscaper is one of the biggest mistakes a home or property owner can make. The maximum amount of watering is three times a week, at a ½ inch each time. Keeping track of your watering schedule is a great way to best optimize your watering system and give your lawn the best opportunity to be the best it can be.
