How To Properly Water Fescue Grass Lawns

Payment methods
While there is usually significant rainfall (on average) during the summer months, it is often sporadic and undependable. Fescue has a deep root system, but it will discolor, thin, and eventually die under drought conditions.

In general, a fescue lawn will need about an inch of water every 7-10 days, whether from rain or irrigation. Try to water deeply and infrequently. For example, apply an inch of water on a single day rather than .25 inches a day for four days. Stop watering, however, if water begins to pool or run on the surface.

If you have an automatic sprinkler system, take a moment to investigate your control box and settings. Do not be shy about increasing the pre-set cycles during drought or turning off the entire system after rainfall. While lack of water will affect your lawn’s color and growth, excess water can kill a lawn entirely.
