Growing a Healthy Lawn with Less Water

Many times we are over watering our lawns. The City of Carver allows watering on every even or odd-numbered day of the month, but that does not mean your grass or gardens need water every other day. The rule of thumb is that grass needs 1” of water a week and that can come from rain or a hose.

Cities supply three-times as much water to residents and businesses in the summer, as compared to winter. This can stress groundwater supplies and infrastructure as the additional water for irrigation requires city water departments to pump more water, treat more water, and pipe it to homes.
