When To Water Your Lawn: Learn The Signs Of A Thirsty Lawn

Unsure as to when you should turn on your lawn sprinklers in Omaha? It’s easy if you know the signs of a thirsty lawn. Your grass needs watering if:

  • The blades turn a grayish-blue instead of a dark green.
  • Walking across the lawn leaves footprints. Grass that doesn’t spring up after walking across it is thirsty.
  • The blades are rolling or starting to fold.
  • A screwdriver won’t go into the soil with gentle pressure.

Water your lawn deeply, and then watch for signs that your lawn is getting thirsty. This will help determine your watering schedule. Or better yet, let us install a “smart” controller or weather station for your lawn sprinklers and your lawn will determine its own watering schedule.
