This spring was the season for flooding in Winona, MN. After significant snow melt and rainfall this spring, plenty of lawns have already seen excess water and even pooling. Unfortunately, for some Winona locals, this has put their grass at something of a disadvantage. If you've noticed signs of damage to your healthy grass this spring, the lawn care professionals with Maier Tree and Lawn can help you get your lawn back on track for every season.
While watering your lawn regularly is important, too much of a good thing can do significant damage to grass roots and soil. Like any plant, grass needs water and oxygen to survive. If it's getting plenty of one but not enough of the other, this can lead to significant health issues or even death. Unfortunately, with the excessive melting this year, parts of your lawn may have already been subject to this type of over-watering.
Over-watering otherwise healthy grass can produce very visible problem areas. Puddling, of course, is a sign that too much water has been used. If your lawn looks like a kiddie pool, there's a good chance those grass roots are at risk. Other signs include dead or brown spots, mold or fungus growth, excess weed growth, or pest problems. Water tends to draw all sorts of life forms that aren't exactly conducive to healthy grass. If you're getting constant visitors, you could be fostering an overly damp environment. Consulting a lawn care expert in the event of any of these symptoms is a great way to ensure your lawn doesn't sustain irreversible damage.
Healthy grass aside, over-watering your lawn can be a major waste of time, water, and money. For homeowners invested in global conservation, reducing lawn watering can be a simple way to cut down on resources without risking the health of your grass or other plants. Even if you don't live in a drought-prone area, saving water and conserving where you can is always a great way to contribute to a healthy local ecosystem.
