Living in Florida, especially in the summertime, there is pretty much rain falling in your area every day. But to get your grass green does that mean your grass needs to be watered? Or does that mean your grass is already overwatered? Let’s dive into how water can play a crucial part in your lawn’s ability to be green.
Is it the sprinkler’s fault?
Do you have patchy brown spots on your lawn? The first thing to check is the sprinklers. Firstly, are all the irrigation heads working. Secondly, are they reaching all areas and not just some areas? Thirdly, is your sprinkler going off at the right time. Many people get the misconception that they should do it in the middle of the day, but the best time is before 8 am. This way your grass can soak up all the water before the sun comes out.
Is it the weather’s fault?
The weather in Florida is bipolar, there is absolutely no denying that. But what happens if it is too hot or too rainy? Firstly, heat means the soil will dry out so you need to pay attention to how much rainfall you are getting and water the yard as needed. This is the same if you are getting a ton of water, make sure to adjust your sprinklers to less or turn them off for the day. Secondly, try a rain gauge to monitor the water you are getting in the yard. This way if it is bone dry you know that you need your irrigation to go off as needed. Thirdly, weeds have a tendency to take over the lawn if there is not enough water to compensate.
