While watering the lawn at night might make sense for many reasons, it is not always the best way to ensure your lawn ideas remain looking in tip top condition.

We all dream of a lush, vibrant green lawn, but in spells of dryness or extreme heat, yellowing grass can become a real eyesore. Understanding when the best time of day to water a lawn is will really help when it comes to ensuring your garden remains looking healthy and fresh when the sun shines — exactly the time when you want to be outside enjoying it the most.
