Summer Irrigation Tips for a Southern Lawn

Sprinkler casting water

Summer can be a tough time for some plants in the Greenville, South Carolina area. Learning the right ways and times to water your plants is very important if you want to keep your lawn or landscape looking alive and healthy. Check out some of our tips for watering your lawn this summer below:

Be Aware of Your Watering Times

Water in the early morning during the summer. This allows ample time for the water to soak into the plants before the sun comes out and evaporates the water. Otherwise, watering at night and letting the water sit overnight will promote mold growth.

Keep Your Plants’ Leaves Dry

We understand that sometimes it’s impossible to keep your plants’ leaves dry. When leaves get wet, it invites disease and mold to invade the plant. Try to keep water off of the leaves as much as you can.

Don’t Overwater

Most gardens and landscaped areas need about one to two inches of water of water per week. If you over water, it could lead to rotted roots and soil compaction. You will keep your plants happy and your water bill low if you water your plants the correct amount.
