Engledow Group on Indy Style: Summer Drought and Best Irrigation Practices

Summer is in full swing, bringing warm temperatures and sparse rainfall. These factors combined can wreak havoc on lawns and turf. The best method to keep a lawn happy and health during the summer months is through proper irrigation. First, make sure to water turf only when it is needed. A telltale sign that a lawn needs watering is the grass turning a bluish green color and footprints that remain in the turf after walking across it. Second, water your grass the correct amount. Lawns in Indiana require 1 to 1.5 inches of rain a week. Finally, water in the mornings when water pressure is at its highest and water lost to evaporation is negligible.
