Watering your Ohio lawn in the evening: Don’t do it!

by editor on June 10, 2011

Many people are tempted to mow and water their Ohio lawns in the evening before putting the gardening tools away and getting ready to relax for the night. However Ohio lawn care experts advise against watering in the evening. You may think the overnight saturation is good for your Ohio lawn, but it can actually be quite detrimental.

Allowing water to lie on the grass all night leads to the spread of Ohio lawn fungus. As the fungus spreads, it will create thin, discolored (usually straw-colored) circular spots within your Ohio lawn. The fungus may not be noticeable at first, and is liable to kill your grass, especially if left untreated for too long. Many people also mistake these dry, discolored patches as a sign to water more, further exacerbating the problem.

If your Ohio lawn falls prey to fungus, it is possible to treat on your own; however this could be costly since most fungicides are sold in bulk. It might be cheaper and most cost-effective to have Ohio lawn care specialists treat the fungus to ensure it is completely eliminated from your Ohio lawn.
