The best time to water grass seed is in the morning and evening. These are the coolest parts of the day, which allows water to absorb into the ground instead of evaporating. A water timer can simplify the process of when to water grass seeds, so you can easily and efficiently water your newly seeded lawn with no hassle at all.
How to water new grass seed depends on the area you’ve seeded. Large areas can benefit from the use of a quality rectangular sprinkler. Use a small spot sprinkler for smaller seeded areas
How Long to Water New Grass Seed
How long to water new grass seed depends on your soil conditions and your sprinkler setup. In general, ten minutes of watering per session (morning and evening) will provide enough water to keep the top couple inches of soil moist.
As your new grass seed grows and flourishes, you can water deeper and less frequently – this will encourage established grass roots to extend deeply into the soil. When watering grass seedlings, gradually increase your morning watering sessions over time, while decreasing your evening watering. Eventually, you’ll want to water between 6 and 10 am, while the weather is still cool. An established lawn typically requires about 1 inch of water per week, including rainfall.
How Long Does Grass Seed Take to Grow?
How long it will take for your new grass seed to begin to grow really depends on where you live, your climate and what type of grass you plant. It can take anywhere between 3 and 28 days for new grass seed to begin to grow.
A beautiful, vibrant lawn not only looks great, but it also provides a place for you and your family to play, relax and enjoy. A consistent water schedule for watering new grass seed is key to making sure you’re growing a healthy, lush green lawn that will give you years of enjoyment and beauty.
“I have just completed one year with the folks at DREAMLAWN and have found them to be prompt, thorough and very professional. Turning my lawn over to DREAMLAWN was not an easy task as I have taken care of my lawn for years and am very particular about how well my grass is cut and is prepared for each of the four seasons here in Virginia.
I have further found that each of my DREAMLAWN treatments were done with expertise and concern for completing the job professionally and to the satisfaction of the customer. My lawn has maintained an excellent color and has been healthy as we head into the winter months. Treatments are well priced and if I have had any concerns about any of the treatments, I could immediately call and these needs would be met.
I would recommend anyone to DREAMLAWN to keep their lawn and shrubbery in peak condition throughout each of the seasons we experience here in Virginia Beach.”
