How often should I water my lawn?

This is probably the most frequently asked question we receive. While there’s no one-size-fits-all answer for everyone, grass typically needs one inch of water per week throughout the growing season.

How do I know how much water we’ve gotten this week?

The best way is to put a rain gauge, or household container, out in the yard to help gauge total accumulation.

I use sprinklers, how do I know how long to let them run?

Put a rain gauge, or household container, in the yard. Start running your sprinkler system and time how long it takes to get one inch of water.

Can I walk outside on my lawn after it's been treated?

Yes. We suggest allowing lawn to dry for approximately 2 hours.

How do I get rid of weeds?

Many people are surprised to learn that pulling weeds is not the answer. Pulling weeds out of your lawn can break the pre-emergent barrier and actually stimulate more weed growth. Additionally, many home and business owners realize (too late) that they’ve also pulled out healthy vegetation right along with the weeds. At Pine Valley Turf, we recommend utilizing a professional weed control spray solution over multiple applications to optimize results. Our team of specialists applies the right amount of herbicides directly to weeds in your yard, eliminating unwanted growth and helping your property thrive.

Do we want to put down the whole inch all in one shot?

No. We want to divide it up over 2-3 days, and over 2-3 cycles throughout the day.

Which days should I water?

Not the day you mow. Typically you would water the day after you mow.

What time of day should I water?

Watering should start before the sun is up and be done by 8 am at the latest.

Should I water after it rains?

Many people wonder if it’s worth it to water after it rains. The answer depends on several factors, such as how much it rained as well as what type of rain it was. For an all day, soaking rain, you can probably hold off until next week. However, for a heavy, but short, rainfall that only lasted several minutes, most of it will probably circle the storm drain, making it critical to water your lawn still.
