When should turfgrass be watered?
Most of the grasses require about one inch of water per week when they are actively growing. Either watch your own rain gage, or watch the weatherman and keep up with how much rain has fallen for the past week. If more than one-half inch has fallen, don't water. If no rain has fallen, add one inch of water. Try to water only once a week, one inch at a time.
