Houston is currently experiencing record-breaking temperatures and extended periods of dryness deep into summer. These extreme weather conditions highlight the urgent need to ensure your lawn and plants receive adequate water to thrive in the scorching summer heat. Proper watering becomes crucial to ensure your landscape remains vibrant and healthy. We will discuss how to update your watering schedule and taking a look at the benefits of an irrigation system to combat the summer heat.

1. Reevaluate Your Watering Schedule:
At Lawn John, we closely monitor weather patterns and recommend fine-tuning your watering schedule based on recent climatic data. Here are some essential tips to adapt your watering routine:

a. Watering Frequency: With Houston's recent heatwave, it's crucial to increase the frequency of watering. Lawn John advises watering at least 2-3 times a week during peak summer months, ensuring they stay hydrated and resilient.

b. Optimal Timing: To minimize water loss due to evaporation, water your landscape early in the morning or late in the evening when temperatures are cooler. Avoiding midday watering can protect your plants from potential heat stress.

c. Deep Watering: To combat dry conditions, deep watering becomes even more critical. Water deeply but less frequently to encourage roots to reach moisture deeper in the soil, helping your lawn survive periods of drought.

d. Monitor Soil Moisture: Take advantage of Lawn John's state-of-the-art soil moisture sensors to accurately gauge your plants' water needs. These sensors help prevent overwatering and promote efficient water usage.
