During all parts of the year, water plays an important role in keeping your lawn looking green and lush. That means even when colder weather sets in. Even when grass goes dormant, the roots still require water in order to remain hydrated during the cold months. Otherwise, roots can dry up and even die. The grass might look fine above ground, but the lack of water could have weakened it enough to die when  the warmer weather returns or it gets hit by disease. Also, watering your lawn just before low temperatures hit can help protect it from frost damage. The water strengthens the grass, enabling it to fight any potential damage caused by cold weather. Also, water releases heat more slowly than plant tissues, which then helps the grass blades hold onto heat longer. What does change about watering your lawn is the amount of water you should use for your lawn during those cooler months. Already, here in Memphis, we are experiencing some pretty chilly weather conditions. That means our landscape teams are making changes to automatic sprinkler systems and irrigation controls. This is the time to move from twice a week watering to a schedule where you water just once a week. And, with rainy weather on the way, there may be times where Nature does the job for your sprinklers so you'll need to switch them off. Do you need help with your lawn during the winter?
