‘Damages the lawn!’: ‘Crucial’ factor to avoid ‘devastating’ effects on your grass’ health

4. Not watering enough (when allowed) 

People often think the rain will naturally provide a lawn with all the water it needs. But if the last few months have proved anything, relying solely on the weather to keep our lawns green does not work. 

Of course, your lawn can survive a few weeks of drought, but it will eventually thin the turf and create an ideal environment for weeds to invade. So for those who want a healthy lawn they need to be watering their grass.

David advised: “When it comes to watering your lawn, be proactive rather than reactive. At the first signs of it going brown, gardeners should water their lawns to keep it a luscious green. Just remember, it’s much easier to maintain a healthy lawn than to let it go brown and fight to get the green back.  

“The average lawn needs around one to one and a half inches of water a week, although it will vary according to your soil and grass type. It’s best to water once or twice a week; deep and infrequent is better than often and shallow.”
