Don’t begin irrigating your lawn too quickly this summer. The cool temperatures and persistent rain patterns seen this spring are actually conducive to healthy lawn growth. In fact, rain works better than any man made irrigation system. The pros at Emerald Companies (St Cloud, MN) recommend going 1-2 weeks between watering sessions, periodically adjusting this schedule to account for changing rain patterns. Overwatering your lawn has the potential to create patches of fungal growth and low lying damp areas, which attract mosquitoes.

 Remember: just because you can push a button to water your lawn doesn’t mean you should. If you are watering every day, it’s likely too much.
