Experts Say To Water Your Lawn Now Before It's Too Late

If you have not watered your yard lately, you might want to start. Otherwise, experts say come spring your lawn could be dead.

Glenn Young has been repairing lawns for 25 years. He says during the winter months people do not water their lawns because they think it's dead. The grass may be yellow, but Young says the root system still needs moisture, and because of the dry conditions, he recommends people water their lawn at least once a week.

"The one day a week they water they might want to water it twice that day, maybe two hours apart, let's say maybe at 6:00 a.m. and then again at 8:00 a.m.," said Glenn Young, Owner of A-1 HydroMulch. "It's better to water early in the morning rather than at night. At night it' not very good to keep the grass wet through the night."

With the recent threat of grass fires, Young also says watering your lawn helps slow down a fire.
