How can I tell if my lawn is getting enough water?

Watering Requirements for Lawns

On average, a lawn requires one inch of water per week to stay in optimal condition. One inch of water penetrates into the soil to a depth of one foot in light soils and up to six inches in heavier soils.

If you are receiving a decent amount of rain in your area, you may not have to water your lawn each week. Be mindful of when it rains and monitor your grass. Too much water can cause disease and rot to occur.
