How often should I water my grass?

Grasses with a shallow root system should be watered for shorter periods of time and more frequently; allowing for shallow root expansion and more growth in the plant. Grasses with deep root systems need to be watered for longer periods of time and less frequently to help develop deeper root growth. Watering past the saturation point doesn’t accomplish any purpose, the soil will only accept so much.

 

Depending upon where you live nature sometimes takes care of the water situation and grass should be watered only when it begins wilt, pale in color or have no resiliency. This is during a "normal" weather. On days of extreme heat more water is lost through evaporation than plants can handle and become wilted from the stress of the heat. Since the blades can absorb some water it can be beneficial to mist the grass (for a short period) through the hottest time and allow it to regain its integrity until night time and dew revive the grass.

LawnIrrigation.com - Watering Frequency

FREQUENCY:

This varies depending on the soil type.  Clay loam soils in a cool season zone need less irrigation than a sandy soil in a hot climate area.  More frequent irrigation is desirable on sandy soils, but with less applies each application.  

An irrigation systems actual application rate must be configured to supply water based on your particular soils infiltration rate.  A lot of factors can effect this rate including amount of compaction, soil texture and structure, and even the slope of your lawn area.  With some soils the infiltration rate is so slow that you must use repeated light irrigations to wet the soil to the correct depth.

ACCEPTABLE  INFILTRATION RATES FOR SOILS:

Sands:  .5 to 1.0 Inches per hour.
Sandy loam:  .3 to .5 inches per hour.
Loam: .2 to .4 inches per hour.
Clay soils will require even lower application rates.
