According to Perma-Green’s Steve Daly, the secret to having one of the best lawn’s in Crown Point is as simple! Just add water!

The Secret to a Plush, Green Lawn is Revealed! Just add water
Perma-Green has been helping people achieve gorgeous lawns since the early 70s. So what’s the secret to nearly 50 years of success. Simplicity. According to Daly, it’s just a matter of feeding the root system with the right full-season lawn program and knowing when to water and how much. A good lawn care company will help identify the right treatment and coach the homeowner when to water and how much.
According to Daly, “while we invest in the best training and annual certifications, we can’t create a beautiful lawn without the homeowner watering the lawn when it’s needed. It’s a team concept. Because watering correctly is critical to our success, our Perma-Green Technicians coach our full-season customers with recommendations for when and how much to water. Like lawn care programs, the amount of watering is based on soil composition, recent precipitation, and other factors.”
If you didn’t read Perma-Greens article called, The Secret to your Best Lawn Ever…Just Add Water, this might be a good time to check it out. Every lawn in Northwest Indiana has its own unique fertilization needs. What Perma-Green recommends in LaPorte is different than Chesterton. Crown Point’s soil composition is completely different than neighboring Hobart and Munster. This is also true of watering. The watering schedule and amount of water needed change as the soil composition changes.
When to Water after Weed & Feed
Another Perma-Green article to help you was called, How to Keep your Lawn Green during Summer Heat. We learned that common mistakes that can ruin even the best lawn care programs include mowing too low, watering too little or too much, or ignoring early signs of insects or disease.
This is especially true in late summer. Last August was especially hard on lawns. Northwest Indiana had a third of the rain our yards needed to be healthy.
The key to having a green, healthy lawn is having the right season-long lawn program and getting the right advice. Your lawn is a living ecosystem. Ignoring problems or not treating your lawn correctly may cause your yard to quickly lose that green, healthy look or even die in patches. When to water after weed & feed is determined by the specific treatment, which in turn is determined by your lawn’s soil composition and history. How we treat a yard that is new to a full-season program is different than a customer that we’ve supported for several years. It sounds complex, but all people really need to know is when to water….and that’s why we coach them. Easy Peasy!
Watering New Sod | Lake County Lawn Care
A newly sodded lawn will require water 1 or 2 times per day. Sod should be watered so that the sod strip is wet the entire thickness and the soil underneath is moist to the depth of 1 inch. Overwatering sod is a common mistake. Do not saturate the soil below the sod. This will inhibit roots from growing into the soil. As sod becomes established and roots penetrate and grow, gradually reduce the frequency of watering but wet the soil to a greater depth. After the sod has been mowed 3-4 times, deep & infrequent watering should be practiced. Follow watering guidelines for your soil conditions.
Watering New Grass Seed | Crown Point
Watering Grass Seed, or a newly seeded lawn will need to be watered 2-4 times per day – the seedbed should be moistened to a depth of 1-2 inches but not saturated. As the seed germinates and seedlings begin to grow, it is essential that the new seedlings are not allowed to dry out. Continue to water 2-4 times per day if the weather conditions are dry. When the seedlings reach 2 inches in height, gradually start to reduce the frequency of watering and water more deeply. After the new turf has been mowed 2-3 times, deep & infrequent watering should be practiced. Follow watering guidelines for your soil conditions.
