Not sure how much you’re watering? Perform an irrigation audit!
One of the constants of life in North Texas is July is usually drier than a powder house. This parched condition can persist into September (most of the time). The lawn is usually the first part of a landscape to show drought stress. Proper watering practices are the key to a healthy lawn during these hot and dry times. The goal is to keep the lawn looking great and not waste water while doing so.
The goal is to apply 1 inch of water per cycle. When I ask folks “how long does it take to put an inch of water on the lawn” the answer usually goes like this “I water for 10 minutes”. It makes no difference how long you water if you don’t know how much water you are putting on. This is where an “irrigation audit” is needed. You can do this audit yourself.
