ASK THE EXPERTS

"What's your number one tip for improving the quality of your grass?"


Applying water too rapidly causes runoff, as grass can absorb only so much water at a time. When runoff happens, soil, fertilizers and pesticides can wind up in nearby waterways. Also, over-irrigation can push nutrients deep into the soil and away from plant roots. Watering deeply and infrequently – about twice a week and 4 to 6 inches deep can help prevent under-watering or overwatering.
