In 2018, you’ll be able to enjoy our social media pages on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and hear our radio shout-outs on The COOP SHOW on Eagle 97.3fm in the mornings. Our technicians will be able to upload photos and videos as they’re working- to highlight the beautiful lawns we care for, as well as to show examples of seasonal problems. Did you ever look at a weed or a brown spot in your lawn, or a bug eating your roses and wonder ‘what the heck is that?!’ Email us a photo, and we’ll ask our knowledgeable technicians. Once we get an answer, we can share it with you via email, AND add it to our pages, so your friends and neighbors don’t have to wonder, either. This is the information age, after all, and we want to provide our customers with as much information as possible about what’s going on in their lawns, and what we can do to help. Your Dreamlawns team is excited to have more ways to reach our customers and our community in 2018 and beyond!

When’s The Best Time To Water New Grass Seed?

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.
