If you do not water your lawn enough, this can lead to a range of problems and can ultimately result in your lawn dying. On the other hand, watering your lawn too much has its own problems too.

One of the keys to a healthy and happy lawn is finding a balance when it comes to watering, so we have put together a few tips and tricks to help you along. If you require any further turf assistance, give Rosemount Turf a call on 5448 6398.


For a more consistent spread of water, use sprinklers and soaker hoses in your area. If possible, try not to hand water with a hose, as this can lead to inconsistencies in watering.

When you water

Water your lawn in the morning and the evening – not in the heat of the day. Additionally, do not water your lawn at night, as this can lead to fungal issues.

Watering time

Water your lawn less frequently, but for longer time periods. Watering your lawn 2-3 times a week for one hour each time is must better than watering your lawn 6 times a week for 15 minutes at a time. You want to train your lawn to be more drought tolerant, and frequent short watering’s will only cause your lawn to become thirstier and less drought tolerant.

Lawn types

Different lawn types require different amounts of water, so always ensure that you do your research when investing in a new lawn.

Weather conditions

Finally, varying weather conditions will change up the way you water your lawn. If you have had hot weather for a number of consecutive days, you may need to add some extra watering into your routine. On the other hand, if you have had wet weather for a while, you will likely need to water your lawn less than normal.

One aspect to always remember is to abide by the relevant water restrictions set in your area. If you select a drought tolerant lawn and follow the above tips, your lawn will find it more manageable to cope during any restrictions, current and into the future.
