With much of the Western U.S. experiencing drought conditions this summer, it’s important to consider how you should care for your lawn while conserving water.
Summer is finally here, but in some areas of the United States, this summer is also bringing an unexpected heat wave and drought conditions. When these circumstances arise, it is important to ensure that we are not wasting any water when we water our lawns. The good news is that the Ring to GREEN process is naturally water-conservation friendly, as it encourages less watering each day in order to prevent fungus growth. Over-watering leads to fungus growth, especially during warm summer months, because fungus thrives when the soil is warm and wet.
It is important to make sure your lawn gets enough water to survive summer heat, yet not too much water. Please be sure to review the Ring to GREEN blog page entitled “A Guide to Preventing Over-watering While Using Ring to GREEN”. This article will give you great tips to make sure your lawn is hydrated, but not overwatered.
Some cities and counties are requiring every-other-day watering to conserve water. If your city or county requires this, please refer to the info at the end of this article to learn how to water your lawn every-other-day using Ring to GREEN.
We still encourage you to water your lawn every day in the Ring to GREEN process, unless your city or county requires you to do otherwise. Watering for less time each day is equally as effective in conserving water as watering every other day. Here’s a few guidelines for choosing how to water your lawn and conserve water during times of drought:
To summarize, the Ring to GREEN process encourages water conservation by watering smaller amounts of time daily, thus eliminating overwatering and preventing fungus. If you have any questions about how to conserve water with the Ring to GREEN process, please call us at 801-918-2541.
