Water restrictions only mean that you have to think of ways to keep your lawn looking good. You can still maintain a healthy lawn even in drought conditions. Here are tips to keep your yard looking good even during drought and water restrictions.
1. Water wisely
When there is a water restriction, you have to use the water wisely. Water your lawn in the morning for 15 minutes. You can also water only the areas that you want to remain green.
2. Wetting agents
A moisture retention agent will come in handy when you don’t have enough water. All you have to do is click it on your hose. Use moisture retention every 4 or 5 weeks to make watering effective.
De-thatching helps grass absorb moisture. Thatching is when you accumulate dead organic matter and should not be a concern. De-thatching when there is a drought will help more water to be absorbed into your lawn. Aerating the lawn delivers water to the root system directly.
4. Reduce foot traffic
You should protect your lawn if possible by reducing the pet and human traffic. Foot traffic makes it harder for your lawn’s roots to absorb moisture. Reduced foot traffic will also make it easy for the lawn to spring back after the drought.
5. Use a water management application
A water management application will help during water restrictions and drought periods. You’ll achieve better results when you apply the product earlier. The product uses technology like that in the baby diaper. It holds water longer and reduces drought impact. The application has to be done on the watering days.
