Watering Your Bermudagrass Lawn

south florida lawn careAfter you have established a bermudagrass lawn, it’s important that you properly water it to make sure it remains lush and green. You should make sure that you have a good irrigation system installed in your landscape to guarantee it receives the water it needs!

Bermudagrass is a “water as needed” grass. This means that the only times you’ll need to run your sprinkler system is when the leave blades begin to wilt or start turning blue-grey in color. You should only apply as much as ¾ of an inch of water to your landscape while watering. If necessary, you should run tests on your sprinkler system to make sure it is watering your grass properly. The roots are only in the top 8 inches of soil, so it’s important to be mindful of the amount of water you are putting on your grass.

If there is a prolonged drought, your Bermuda grass will go dormant. During this period, it will turn brown and stop growing. Once the drought is over, it will revive and start growing again with the proper amount of water.
