Lawns have been under attack for many years now. People have said they they need tons of water. This has also been said about fertilizers, pesticides and gas guzzling mowing. There are better lawn care attitudes and practices that a person can do. Lawns are a very important thing to many people.
- Studies show that as little as 1/4 inch of water over a three-week period can be enough to keep the sod alive.
- WEEDKILLERS PROBABLY NOT NEEDED. The good news, according to Rossi, is that the majority of public with lawns use NO herbicides at all.
- The best defense against weeds, of course, is following sound lawn-care advice to produce a nice thick lawn and patching the bare spots, too.
“Conventional wisdom is correct that grasses need about 1 inch of water per week, but only during periods of active growth.”
