Here you’ll find five articles, which are great resources. One is by a Cornell University turf grass professor, one by the Cornell Cooperative Extension, one is taken from Landscape and Irrigation Magazine, one by Tim and the last by the University of Florida. They cover the science and some opinion about how we should water our lawns.
WARNING – Although these are informative articles, they are also boring reads. Irrigation is definitely not glamorous.
