It is not
typically recommended to water every day. For best results, water less
often but for longer. Here is a sample watering schedule.
Mon, Tues, Wed, Thur, Fri, Sat, Sun
on --- on --- on --- ---
Zone 1 2 3 4 5 6
Min 10 10 12 10 8 -
Start time 1. 4:00 am
Start time 2. 6:00 am
As you look at this example please note the two separate start times. Having your timer come on twice for shorter amounts of time gives the first dose time to soak in. You will have less run off and literally less water down the drain.

Although many companies sell yearly packages of fertilizer (many of which are great), the best and most important is a good fertilization in the late fall. This will promote root growth during the winter months and give you a better lawn that can go longer between watering in the spring.
Believe it or not in most cases you can control weeds just by improving the health of your lawn. One, by proper fertilization and two, by proper watering. It takes time to create a healthy lawn so while you work on improving the health, this is what you can do about weeds.
Liquid weed killers are in most cases better. Although the active ingredients are identical, the liquids tend to stick to the weeds better and kill faster and more predictably. Granular weed killers do work great but you must read and follow the directions exactly.
