Proper irrigation for your facility grounds is like walking the high wire – it’s all about balance!
Too much water can create dead grass. On the other hand, not enough water will surely create dead grass.
Most times, a properly maintained lawn is the first thing visitors will see when they arrive at your facility. It is important to take care of your landscaping investment, by keeping the grounds properly watered during the Summer.
Here are some tips for effectively watering your grounds:
- add mulch and compost – these materials naturally occur in nature to seal in moisture in the ground soil. Adding mulch and compost can help your plants thrive during dry spells.
- water in the early morning or late afternoon, outside of the sun’s peak hours.
- aerating your soil can help more water soak down deeper into the soil
- pull up weeds, so they are not stealing water from your valuable plants
- perform a system check to ensure your irrigation system is working optimally, there are no clogged or broken heads, and water is flowing efficiently
