Here in Larenceville , the summer heat can be unbearable. While you could definitely settle for a nice brown patch of grass as a yard, we highly doubt that that’s what you want. One of the main causes that leads to a brown lawn is a lack of watering, and at times, too much watering. If that’s the case, how does anyone manage to have a green yard? We know, it sounds crazy and almost impossible, but there are a few tips that can help you get a better idea of what needs to be done in your yard.


Understanding the best time of day to water your yard is something that can definitely help you work towards that green lawn. There are quite a few people that believe the best time to water their yard is at night. The thought process behind this is that it’s dark out, so the sun isn’t going to allow for that water to rise immediately after it’s been sprayed. Unfortunately, that’s not how it works.

When you water your yard at night, you are not only slowing the growing process, but you’re increasing the chances for mold. As you may know, in order for a plant to grow in needs the right fertilizer, plenty of water, and sun. When you are watering your grass at night, the water soaks down to the root of the grass, but it’s missing the part of the equation that allows for the grass to grow: the sun. If you want to get this done while it’s cool enough for the water to really soak in, consider doing this first thing in the morning when the sun is just starting to rise and temperatures will be lower.

Another reason that watering at night is an awful idea is that the water is more likely to produce mold. When that happens, mold can spread through your yard and kill any grass, trees or shrubs that you might have.


The second thing that you need to consider with watering is placement. If you are still using a hose as your watering method, it is time that you consider installing an irrigation system into your yard. The systems that we work with are installed in a way that water will hit every part of the yard that needs water. When people use a hose to water their plants, they don’t usually water evenly, so the lawn gets patchy.

As for irrigation systems, you can feel confident that your watering is getting done and know that it’s being done evenly. If it’s cost that you’re worried about, you’d be surprised how affordable these systems are. Especially when you consider how much energy they save through the ability to schedule your sprinklers and distribute a reasonable amount of water to the entirety of your yard.


As we mentioned before, the amount of water that you’re using is also going to be important. You don’t want to be leaving your grass out to dry in the Georgia sun, that’s a sure way to end up with a dead and patchy yard. However, when you give your grass too much water, the same effect is capable of happening. This is another great reason to consider investing in an irrigation system if you don’t already have them. The system is designed to spray your yard with the right amount of water that it will need to grow, and you won’t have to guess to determine whether or not you gave too much water.
