Watering your lawn with the correct timing will result in the greenest and the healthiest lawn that you can get. You might say that lawns need water all the time but it’s a bad idea in a long run to feed them in a wrong time.
Okay, so what are the times on when we should not be watering our lawn?
Simple answer is when the sun is at its highest or at the middle of the day. Because the water will simply evaporate from the heat that comes from the sun. And if the water evaporates quickly, then there is no chance that the water will reach the root of your lawn. End result is waste of money, water and effort. It’s also worth taking note that some cities prohibit watering a lawn during certain times.
Then what are the best times to water our lawn?
Usual timings are before 10:00AM or after 6:00PM. Yes, the sun is still up but it is not at its highest point anymore. If you will be watering your lawn around those times then the water will have a better chance of reaching the roots of your lawn. If you water by hand, make sure you have enough time after getting up in the morning to prepare and to finish watering your lawn before 10:00AM or to water them after 6:00PM and to be finished before going to bed.
But the very best time of the day to water your lawn is at very late nights or early in the morning before sunrise. Those are the best timings to water your lawn because you don’t have to compete with the sun evaporating the water on your lawn during daytime. Another benefit that you can get from watering your lawn at those times is you will be using less water that you usually consume when you water in daytime. Because virtually all the water will be sucked by your lawn and nothing will be wasted. If this is the case then there is no need consume much more water just to factor in the chances of the water evaporating before it reaches the roots of your lawn.
A water sprinkler will be very useful at this point because anyone will find it inconvenient to water their lawn manually on those times. Simply set the timer of the sprinkler to your desired time within early morning or late at night.
