Why is my grass dying even though I water it daily?
Water is not the only essential element to keeping a thriving lawn, although it’s undoubtedly one of the most significant ones. Few homeowners ever stop to think about weeds competing for the precious natural resources found in their yard. If your lawn is overgrown with weeds, your grass may not be getting enough nutrients from the soil. Sometimes your lawn may turn brown because of lawn diseases and certain fungi. You could also have a pest infestation of cinch bugs or grubs draining your lawn of moisture and nutrients. Finally, if you have a pet that relieves itself in your yard, the acid in your pet’s urine could be killing your grass one yellowed patch at a time. Investing in a sprinkler system could help you maintain your lawn, but it may not be the only thing recommended by our landscaping experts.
Should I run my water sprinkler system every day?
Your lawn should be watered several times per week year-round, though it may not necessarily require water every day. Remember, your lawn is also getting water from rain. Always check your rain gauge to see if your grass is getting at least an inch of water per week. Too much water can be just as harmful to your lawn as not enough water. Daily watering can cause your grass to develop a shallow root system, meaning it will dry out fast, especially in times of drought or little rain. Many people choose to install an automatic sprinkler system so they can control how much and how often their sprinkler system is watering their lawn. This is an effective way to ensure you’re not wasting water!
What’s the best time of day to water my lawn?
We typically recommend watering your lawn early in the morning to give it plenty of time to dry out before nightfall. However, if you forget to water your lawn in the morning, watering any time is better than the alternative. Be sure to ask us about automatic sprinkler systems to help make remembering to water your lawn more convenient and hassle-free. If you have an automatic or underground sprinkler system already installed, be sure to check it periodically to ensure adequate coverage of your lawn. Occasionally, sprinkler valves and timers misfunction and need to be repaired or replaced by an expert.
How long should I water each zone of my yard?
You should think of your lawn in terms of various zones, each requiring varying amounts of water. For example, your lawn zone will have different watering needs than your flower beds. How long you water each zone of your yard will also vary by season. During the dog days of summer, your lawn will likely need more water, especially if extreme temperatures are involved, which isn’t out of the ordinary in Utah’s humid climate! Water helps keep your lawn cool and moist even on the hottest day. Underground sprinklers are among your best bet for delivering water in the most effective pattern.
How do you fix yellow or brown patches of grass?
First, you’ll need to analyze the cause for your yellow or brown patches of grass. If your grass isn’t getting enough water, perhaps it’s time you considered installing a lawn sprinkler system. If your pet’s urine is the culprit, try to encourage your pet to relieve himself elsewhere in the yard. If pests or fungi are the issue, there may be pesticides or fungicides that could be applied to the area. You should rake up grass clippings after mowing the grass or piles of leaves and other debris as needed, as many pests tend to hide in these piles. If your lawn isn’t getting enough sunlight, consider thinning out trees around your yard to help alleviate the problem. Fertilize as recommended and try to manage harmful weeds that can deplete your soil’s nutrients.
Will watering dead grass bring it back to life?
Not necessarily. As previously discussed, watering may not be your issue causing dead grass. An investigation is necessary to pinpoint the cause and devise the most efficient solution. Most lawns can survive short droughts, lasting 4-6 weeks or less. If a long Utah drought has caused your grass to wither, it may not be possible to revive it completely. You may need to plant all-new grass turf to help revive your lawn.
