Watering Tips

In the event of a dry spell or draught, follow these simply Joe's tip to help your lawn as best possible:

  1. Apply 2 or 3 good waterings per week to the lawn rather than frequent light watering. This will help to saturate the soil deeper.
  2. Try to water your lawn either first thing in the morning or during the evening when evaporation is at its lowest.
  3. Try to stay off your lawns as much as possible. Your grass is likely to be extremely dry during these periods and is likely to break as you walk over it.
