Information you need to keep your lawn healthy 

WATERING YOUR LAWN 

July 8, 2020

Lawn Watering Tips

Every living thing needs water to survive. Your lawn is no exception. As the weather heats up, your lawn processes more and more water. Unfortunately, at the same time that the lawn is using more water through the summer, there’s usually less natural rainfall available. Without a helping hand in the form of extra sprinkling, your lawn may go dormant or suffer serious thinning from lack of grass care. Dragging that hose around, or turning on the irrigation system, is one of the most important things you can do to ensure a healthy environment for growing grass, and to ensure you get the most from your investment in Elites lawn care services.

What Happens To The Water You Put On The Lawn?


Grass blades are covered with tiny holes (or pores) called stomata. The plants absorb water mixed with nutrients and minerals through the roots and use all of these things in producing food. This process is called photosynthesis. Excess water and turf “waste material” (oxygen) are released through the pores on the grass blades. This is called transpiration, and without enough water, the whole cycle soon slows or even stops completely. Transpiration replaces oxygen in the atmosphere and releases water vapor into the air. It’s this process that allows a lawn as small as 50′ by 50′ to produce enough oxygen to support a family of four.
