Hi, James with tuxedo yard care. I’m here in Washington terrorists today and I wanted to share with you a couple of quick tips on watering in the summer heat here. We’re talking triple digits on a lot of days now, we’re definitely into the summer heat and so even if your sprinkler system is operating perfectly, sometimes there are still some little spots that struggle. And sometimes you can forget to set the timer or something that happens in the lawn dries out. So under normal circumstances and with good soil, I would definitely recommend deep infrequent watering, but if your lawn gets stressed, you’re going to need to give it a little boost for a week or two to get it back to where it needs to be.
And so yeah, keep that in mind. If it gets stressed, it’s going to need a little more for a minute to recover. The regular watering may not be enough to get it back to green. But the other thing is maybe 95% of your lawns perfectly green and you just have a couple of spots that are giving you trouble and you’ve checked your sprinklers and everything’s good there and you don’t want to run the entire sprinkler system and overwater certain areas just to get those little spots, I’d recommend maybe just pulling out a hose and give it a little flood irrigate. And for that little spot, that way, you’re only watering that one spot instead of your entire lawn.
And doing that here and there can really give a deep watering to that spot. And then it’s good to go for a while. And so when you see those spots, that can be a trick to help just get you by through these really hot weeks. Because you give it a few more weeks and this heat will start backing off at some point and things will get better as far as the temperature goes. But right now it’s super hot.
And so those are some things you can do to help conserve water and also help keep your lawn green. So if you have any questions or need any help, give us a call. We’re happy to help it’s 801-540-4713 or tuxedo yard care.com. Have a great day. Bye
