In This Summer Heat, What Is The Best Time to Water?
During these hot summer days, we often get questions regarding the best time to water. It’s best to irrigate between 6am and 8am, as this allows for minimal evaporation and maximum absorption.
We do not recommend watering during the middle of the night, as the longer water stays on the turf and does not absorb, the greater the risk for disease. Nor do we recommend watering during the heat of the day, late afternoon or early evening, since the heat will cause the water to evaporate quickly rather than absorbing into the soil.
As always, feel free to call us with any questions!
