Water Well with CWEL Webinar: Lawn Watering

April 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Hosted by the Center for Water Efficient Landscaping at Utah State University

Lawn Watering – When to Start & How Much to Apply

Without the proper tools watering the lawn can be a bit of a guessing game. Those tools can be as simple as a hose, sprinkler, and a screwdriver to test soil moisture. In past webinars we’ve covered complex topics like evapotranspiration (ET), weather stations, and smart irrigation controllers. This month, we’re going to get back to basics and hopefully get homeowners off to a great start this watering season. Join us as Kelly Kopp, USU Extension Water Conservation and Turf Specialist, answers your questions like; When should I start watering? How much should I apply? Do some lawn types need more water than others? She’ll also pass along water savings tips and resources, like having a free water check preformed, or participating in Utah’s state-wide smart controller rebate program. And believe it or not, letting the lawn go dormant. Yes, your lawn can safely go dormant for 3-4 weeks without dying during the summer.

With 90% of the state experiencing extreme drought, Gov. Spencer J. Cox’s recent Executive Order declaring a state of emergency due to drought conditions, and the irrigation season right around the corner there’s no better time to cover proper lawn watering practices and get homeowners off to a great start this watering season. Water providers & conservation coordinators, please share with your clientele.
