The dos and don’ts of watering your lawn


The dos and don’ts of watering your lawn

Before following our recommendations below, it would be best if you know what type of lawn you have. To help you, below is a break down of cool and warm season lawn varieties. 

Cool season grasses: 
•    Tall Fescue varieties
•    Rye varieties
•    Fine Fescues varieties
•    Bent & Kentucky Bluegrass varieties

Warm season grasses:
•    Kikuyu varieties
•    Couch varieties
•    Buffalo varieties


Do water your lawns in the early morning. 

Do give your lawn longer, less frequent watering.  Deeply penetrating irrigations that wet the soil to a considerable depth encourage deep rooting and result in a more vigorous, higher quality turf.

Do use wetting agents.

Don’t give your lawn short frequent waterings.  Short frequent waterings throughout hot weather will cause many lawn problems such as shallow rooting of the lawn, weed invasion, leaching of soil nutrients and fungus diseases. 

Do install rainwater tanks and look at underground irrigation.  


Munns tip: A newly planted lawn will take up to 12 months before it has established a deep enough root system to achieve its maximum drought tolerance.  Therefore, your lawn will require more watering during its first summer to enable it to develop to the fullest drought tolerant potential.
