A lot of people think ‘watering is watering’, but this isn’t the case. To get the best results from your lawn, less frequent deeper watering is a better option than regular light watering. The deeper watering ensures that the water reaches right down to the roots, and escapes the topsoil where it is likely to evaporate (especially in hot climates).
It’s also best to water during the coolest parts of the day. When your first install your turf we advise watering 3 times a day, so a midday water is fine, but the early mornings and late evenings are infinitely more valuable in terms of water retention. This is why we recommend an automated watering system so regardless of your lifestyle and commitments, the turf will get the water it needs, when it needs it most.
