Should I water my lawn in the summer?

Northern grasses are accustomed to growing in drought conditions. When water is scarce the plant will begin to shut down and go dormant, but will recover once the rains start up again.

In the event that you decide to water your lawn, do it in the early morning hours. We recommend you do not water in the evening as this has been shown to promote fungus problems. Additionally, be sure to water each area thoroughly. Place a bowl in the watering area and see how much water the area is receiving. A good thorough watering of at least an inch of water once a week is better than infrequent shallow watering. Shallow watering encourages the roots to grow to the surface instead of growing downwards.
