Water, Water, Water!

Water, Water, Water!

It's Summer! The days are longer, the sun shines brighter and the temps are sizzling. Even with Zoysia being drought-tolerant and enjoying the additional light each day we still have to pay attention to our lawns, especially newer plantings. No one wants a browning lawn so here is your Summer Refresher Course: Watering Edition!

Telltale Signs of Heat Stress:

  • Curling Blades
  • Discoloration
  • Dry / Cracking Soil Nearby 

How to Water:

  • Water Deeply, at least 1 Inch per Watering
  • Water Once Weekly in Dry Conditions
  • Use a Sprinkler or Irrigation System 

Zoysiagrass, as with all lawn grasses, cannot be totally self-sufficient. Ensuring that your grass is receiving water during periods of drought is a necessity if you are interested in keeping a healthy, full lawn.
