When people water their lawns on a daily basis, they tend to really only water the surface. If you really think about it, we know that water evaporates. This means your lawn is not really being quenched the way the way it should so that it will benefit your lawn.

Because you are only watering the surface, the heat will evaporate it and steal the moisture from the bed of your lawn. This will only result in short root growth which means your grass will not flourish like it could.

Deep Watering Is The Best Way 

Deep watering your lawn is more beneficial for a couple of reasons. If we think about it, your soil will hold the water in deep which will cause a slower rate of evaporation.

This means the roots of your grass is being supplied a sufficient amount of moisture which will result in longer root growth producing stronger & healthier blades for a beautiful lawn.
