Your watering frequency will depend on a number of factors: time of year, type of grass, type of soil. Typically a lawn should receive at least 1 inch of water per week from natural rain or from sprinklers.
Be careful not to water your lawn too much. Your lawn needs moisture, nutrients, and air to grow. By watering to much, you can continuously saturate your soil to the point where the grass roots lack air and cannot grow deep enough roots which will cause many problems. On the other hand, make sure your lawn gets enough water, or else it could go dormant.
The ideal time to water a lawn is early morning. It is best to avoid watering on the day a lawn is mowed.

We offer a 6 step traditional program and a 4 step organic program that starts around the first of April and ends in November. Our applications are applied 5-8 weeks apart depending on which program you sign up for.
We sharpen our mower blades daily. Dull blades tear grass instead of cutting a nice clean edge. When grass is torn, it is more susceptible to fungus and stress.
All fertilizer should be watered in. If weed spray is applied at the same time as fertilizer, you should wait one day to water, so the spray isn't washed away.
