Managing a Tolerant Lawn

Allow your lawn to dry out between waterings. This will help in promoting a drought tolerant lawn. A good way to determine whether it's time to water is by walking on the grass. If the blade set that you walked over doesn't spring back to up-right, it's definitely thirsty. Lawns need only approximately 1 inch of water per week, which is plenty of water to reach deep into the soil where the root system awaits.
