How Much Water Does Your Yard Really Need?

It can be difficult to know how much to water your lawn and outdoor plants, and when to water. Too little water can damage your plants, trees, shrubs and grass. Too much can invite a whole host of problems, too, as well as cost you money. At a time when we’re all encouraged to conserve water, it’s good to know how much water to give to your yard.

Consider using one of Smart Rain’s smart watering systems. Our systems notify property owners of important irrigation management details such as water flow, moisture levels, and more, all through advanced sensors and innovative technologies. Coupled with the Smart Rain app, you can control your sprinklers, view rainfall levels and get detailed reports, all from the convenience of your smartphone.

More water is likely needed if you notice one or more of the following symptoms:

Signs of overwatering include:

How do you tell if your lawn is under- or over-watered? Push your finger into the soil, or dig a small hole two to four inches deep. If it’s still moist that deep, you have enough water for your plants. If you find it’s moist, and your plants show any of the signs listed above, then reduce your watering. And remember, you can really make it easy on yourself by letting us help. Our smart systems eliminate the guesswork involved in watering. With us, you can save effort, time and money and have a yard with happy plants!
