Lawn turf requires 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches of water per week. The amount applied will change depending on the weather conditions. The conditions of high water use are due to high temperatures, low relative humidity, sunny, windy, and long days. Light frequent applications of water are much more productive than heavy applications once per week. Certain turf diseases and insect damage are reduced when light early morning, early afternoon or just prior to the highest heat period of the day. You should slightly increase the amount of water during high temperatures and wind to account for evaporation loss.

Mowing Frequency
A general rule of thumb is to not remove more than 1/3 of the total height of the grass blade at any one mowing. This may require mowing twice a week in the spring and fall and normally once per week in the summer. Removing more than 1/3 of total leaf surface can severely shock the grass plant by decreasing it's ability to support the underground portions of the plant. On the tenth or twelfth day, stop watering your lawn for at least 2 days before mowing. Mow your lawn at the highest setting. We recommend bagging your lawn for the first few mowings.
