Watering Less when Temps are Low

Even though we’re coming up on the end of the rainy season, the temperatures are still low and the sun less intense. That means that your plants and turf grass are still basking in the shade and don’t require nearly as much watering as they did during the hot summer months.

Here’s a couple of super easy and quick tips to dramatically reduce overwatering:

  • Let your turf grass get a little longer. The longer blades will hold more water, and help establish deeper roots. All you have to do is raise your lawn mower a notch and mow a bit less often.
  • Water just once per week and water a little longer than normal—check with your water provider for maximum run times and don’t water so long as to cause runoff! Turf grass only needs to be watered one day per week during these cooler months and a deeper soak will also encourage deeper root growth which will come in handy during the summer.

That’s right—two easy tips that ask you to spend less time working outdoors and more time enjoying it.

The best news is that if you do these two simple things or decide to try even more, you can jump on over to our pledge page and get your FREE Gnorman Approved yard sign! It can head your way without delay!

Getting Ahead of the Storm – Part 2

Last week we talked about how smart it is to install a rain barrel in advance of the rainy season. This week we’re going the other direction and talk about something that isn’t smart—watering your turf grass when it is already raining. No one intends to water their lawn in the rain, it just sort of happens because they forget to turn off a scheduled watering when it happens to rain. Fortunately, there are plenty of solutions that can automatically adjust your watering without you having to do a thing. Even better, we have another round of rebates—up to $380 off a Smart Irrigation Timer and Soil Moisture Sensors. READ MORE »

What do your sprinklers look like?

Most of us know that the best time to water grass is early in the morning. But that also means most of us are either still sleeping or at work when the sprinklers go off. Good thing I have my keen eyes on the look out for some common lawn problems when it comes to the wonderful world of watering. Here’s what I saw on my last adventure!
