Water both the lawn and plants deeply, but infrequently, to encourage deep root growth and save on the water bill. Watering plants and the lawn every day not only wastes water, but it also encourages roots to stay shallow, because they are expecting water tomorrow. Water deeply – saturate the ground, but only when needed. Plants with droopy leaves, a pale color or fainting stems are signs that plants need water. For lawns, look out for a slightly blue tinge on the lawn, or when footprints stay compressed on the lawn, as a sign water is needed.
