There are plenty of practices that homeowners can organize to ensure that their lawn remains green and beautiful in the spring, summer, and fall – and even in the winter. The actions you take as a homeowner are called cultural practices, and they play a big part in the health of your lawn.

Watering Your Lawn
Another area that causes homeowners uncertainty is how to water their lawn. Should you water frequently, for short period of time, or really soak the ground a couple times a week?
In the spring and fall, you should water deeply, and just a once a week (twice in the summer when it’s hot). If you water too often, your grass will receive too much moisture, and you’re opening it up to damage from certain diseases and insects. Instead, watering about an inch deep into the soil will provide the water that your grass needs, no matter the root length. The best time to water is in the morning, before the sun starts to warm up the ground.
