LaPorte County Watering Advice

Attention Lake County Residents: In light of recent rainfall, following proper lawn watering practices is important. Cool-season turf grasses need about 1 1/2 inches of water per week to stay healthy and vibrant. Factors such as soil type, water pressure, and sprinkler type determine how long and often you should water your lawn. For example, sandy soils require deep watering every 2 to 3 days, loamy soils need water every 4 days, and clay soils need water every 5 to 7 days for an extended period. It’s crucial to avoid frequent, light watering, which can result in shallow roots and encourage fungal growth. Repeated stress on the grass makes it more susceptible to disease and insect damage. It may take some time for lawns to recover from the recent harsh weather, and you can expect the color to return only after proper watering. The 7-day forecast suggests temperatures in the 70s and 80s with some rain, which should aid in the recovery. Remember, your efforts are key to helping your lawn bounce back, so be prepared to water if necessary.

LaPorte County is diverse with unique soil composition throughout the County. The secret is having the experience to know when to feed, water, and treat.
