“This is apparent when you walk on the lawn in the evening and your footprints don’t bounce back but stay visible on the lawn for an extended period.”
There are many factors that will influence the frequency with which grass should be watered.
The lawn pro said: “These factors include species of grass, soil type, and climate.
“As a broad generalisation, cool season grasses will require irrigation more frequently than warm season grasses.
“This is because warm season grasses use water more efficiently than cool season grasses.
“Soil type will also affect irrigation frequency. Sandy soils, low in organic matter, have a limited ability to hold plant-available water and drain quite freely.
“Clayey soils, on the other end of the spectrum, can hold much more water than sandy soils, but clays can hold some of the water so tightly that the water isn’t available to the lawn’s roots.
