Here at 1st Products Inc we wanted to pass along some tips to help make watering easier and in the long run make your golf course maintenance easier too:

1.Don’t water every day

One your grass has become fully established you do not need to water it every day. In fact, doing so will cause more harm as it leads to shallow roots and weak grass that canít survive summer dry spells and heat without turning brown.

2.Avoid the heat of the day

Watering in the middle of the day is a waste of both water and money because the majority of the water will evaporate long before it can soak into the ground or be used by the grass. Morning watering is best, just before the sun comes up.

3.Donít water when it’s windy

Just as watering in the heat of the day is a waste of money and water, so is running the sprinklers on very windy days. Wind will blow your water everywhere but where you want and need it. It will evaporate before it can do any good.

4.Inspect your irrigation system

You must routinely check the system for leaks and other damages. Inspect the sprinkler heads, pipes, and connections to make sure everything is in working order. This is how to save water while watering your grass and keeping it healthy.

5.Adjust for seasonal needs
