When should you start watering your lawn after winter?
Furthermore, what should I do to my lawn after winter?
Taking the time to help your lawn wake up properly after cold weather is over minimizes problems later.
- Inspect the thatch layer on the lawn.
- Apply a pre-emergent weed killer in spring before grass resumes growth and before weeds become established.
- Resume irrigation once the grass is growing.
Secondly, when should I cut my new grass after watering? After you've mowed at least once, begin to cut back on watering to about twice per week and soak the soil more deeply (about 6 to 8 inches) each time to encourage the grass roots to grow down deep in the soil.
Also, when should you start watering grass?
- Most properties do not require regular automatic watering until around Memorial Day.
- If the temperature reaches above 70 degrees consistently for more than 3 days then begin automatic watering or run one cycle manually.
- Temperatures in the 60's or below you may water once or twice a week or water manually.
Is it better to leave your lawn long or short for winter?
Cutting Your Grass before Winter Slowly cutting your grass shorter will allow the lawn to winter well without the shock of being cut all off at once. The Proper cutting technique requires that you do not take off more than one-third of the grass blade during a single mowing.
