Water 1/2" this week

With high humidity and lower 90s temperatures, we are still only watering about 1/2" this week.  Remember, this is a conservative maintenance of existing lawn number. It you are trying to get the lawn to fill in some areas or thicken up, you more need more water.  If there are spots that need a little help, come the weekend, remember, Sat ( ODD) and Sun (EVEN ) is a hose dragger day, so you can spot water some dry spots with a small puck sprinker or a fan sprinkler. Although, hose end sprinklers are not the most efficient, they often will us less water than running an entire sprinkler zone if 5-50% of an area is only needing water. Also, rememeber, hand watering is allowed at any time, so if there are specific plants that are struggling, hand watering a new tree or specific plant, may be the best option. Thanks, Cougar Matt out.
