How often should I water my lawn?

You should only water your lawn when it needs it. Are the leaf blades folded? Do footprints remain in it? Is it a blue-grey color? All of these are signs that turf needs water. According to Titusville’s irrigation restrictions, during Eastern Standard Time you may irrigate your lawn only once a week. 

During Daylight Saving Time, you may irrigate your lawn up to twice a week. Remember, both restrictions are a maximum. Often lawns, especially those with large bedding areas and plantings, can be irrigated less often and still maintain good health. 

Over-watering your yard makes it less drought tolerant and encourages mold and fungal growth.
