Fungus for over night watering? What about when it rains over night?
That is a very old misconception. The daytime heating and evaporation will not allow the water to sit on the grass blade long enough to form significant fungus growth.
The Best Watering Practice is whenever the sun is not up, water in multiple Sessions. Water for A short period to allow the soil to become moistened to prevent run off and promote soil and root absorption. Then repeat the process.
Don't forget to Lime and dethatch.
Dislike the whole - don't water at night - guess these people don't work or live where there are water restrictions! The only time you can water here is before 10 AM and after 6PM.
Maybe these experts should check around and notice most of us use hoses not underground
automatic watering systems.
So often "experts" just are not.
In general, the article information is good. Basic, but good. DEFINITELY work in harmony with local conditions and with advice from local experts. HOWEVER, The information associated with slide 8 is definitely misleading. Compacted clay soils will cause water run-off in less than 15 minutes. The soak and cycle process should be based upon 2 to 3 minute applications, not 30 minute. Degree of slope will exaggerate the run-off.
Contact local University Extension offices or Landscape Contractor Association offices for help.
Don't want to water at night, it will destroy your lawn! So anytime it might rain at night you better cover your yard with tarps!
