Today Postbulletin.com published a short article with some tips to keep your lawn green, whether its is sunny or cloudy, dry or moist outside. A local lawn expert says you should water each section of your lawn for only 15 minutes each day. The soil can only absorb so much water and after 15 minutes, the water will just wash away the soils nutrients. The best time to water your lawn is between 6 am and 8 am. A common problem homeowners do is cut their lawn too short. Cutting your lawn too short will stress the grass. You should keep your lawn 3 to 4 inches tall. By keeping your grass at this height, it will shade the ground so it will not dry up.
