Train Your Lawn
Proper watering techniques conserve water, reduce runoff, produce healthy roots, and train your lawn to be more drought-tolerant. Watering too frequently will waste water and fertilizers, may cause disease and weed problems, and can make your lawn/landscape more susceptible to drought.
Learn to use lawn care products properly by reviewing the information printed on the labels of the lawn care products you buy. Using the right amount, the right way, during the right times of the year will give you a healthy lawn.
