We offer weekly watering recommendations to give your yard just the right amount to drink.
If you choose to water your lawn, follow Oregon State University Extension Service guidelines to maintain a healthy lawn in western Oregon. Watering is only one step for keeping your grass green throughout the summer.
Watering recommendation for: July 1-7, 2022
Water your lawn and flowers: 1.36 inches
If your lawn has deep roots split into two watering days: 0.68 inches/watering
If your lawn has shallow roots split into three watering days: 0.45 inches/watering
Tip of the week:Use a hose nozzle with automated shut-off to minimize water usage and excessive run-off when washing your car. You can also place the car where run-off will water the lawn or flowerbeds to minimize storm water pollution and give your yard a drink.
