Lawn watering

rmj619April 13, 2012

Looking for advice on how often to water my lawn. I installed tall fescue sod last year. Hasnt been much rain yet so alot of it is still brownish.

I acttivated my sprinklers yesterday. I have eight zones with about five sprinklers per zone.

Assuming little rain, How long should i water and how often in the spring?

And in the summer?

Google "deep and infrequent" ... in those quotes. I'd guess you'll have more than enough reading for the weekend.
