Question: 

When is the best time to water a lawn?

Answer: 

Early morning (5:00 to 9:00 am) is the best time to water a lawn.  A morning application allows the water to soak deeply into the soil with little water lost to evaporation.  When watering is completed, the turfgrass foliage dries quickly.  Watering at mid-day is less efficient because of rapid evaporation and strong winds may cause uneven water distribution.  Strong, mid-day winds may also carry water onto driveways, sidewalks, or streets, wasting considerable amounts of water.  Watering lawns in late afternoon or evening may increase disease problems.
