On August 21st, 2017, there was a total eclipse, best viewed in the central USA. You wouldn’t want to be in that sort of darkness for long. The sun is the best friend of your garden and lawn, and regular watering with added sunshine keeps plants and turf healthy. There is an art to watering as well. Keep the root system from growing to the surface by deep watering at least once a week. Give your turf 25mm of water each week in a mild climate and do that once every three days in a hot climate. You’re in Western Australia – water restrictions apply.
The tip: place a container that is 25mm deep in the middle of your lawn, and when it’s full, stop watering. If you have a controlled sprinkler system, then program the controller as required. Your soil plays a big part in the program as well. Soil that can absorb and store water is ideal.
