Cold Weather; Watering Routine

A really good time to water your lawn any season is going to be in the morning. Many people incorporate lawn watering into their morning routine. This is the best time to water because it will give the roots more time to absorb the water in a fresh and healthy way. However, when watered at night, the water does not evaporate causing fungus issues. Night watering offers extra time for unwanted pathogens to get into and infiltrate your entire lawn. Make sure to read your Lawn Technicians notes; In winter, it is recommended to cut back on watering to once a week.
