Am I Watering My Grass Enough?

In general, grass needs about 2 inches of water a week. Homes in Viera are on a reclaimed water system and are able to water any day of the week.

Watering during the heat of the day is also not good for your lawn and should be avoided. The best times to water your lawn are between 4 and 10 am.
