Should I water my lawn?
Grass can survive for long periods without water and will quickly recover from drought.
- Unless you totally drench the lawn, watering encourages the roots to come to the surface making it less tolerant to dry conditions.
- In dry spells raise the blades on your mower so that the lawn is left longer and cut the grass less frequently.
- Aerating the lawn will allow moisture to seep down to the roots.
