Saving Your Lawn in St.Charles, Geneva & Batavia, IL

By
Real Estate Agent with Baird&Warner Fox Valley

As a homeowner, you should take precautions to minimize the long-term impact of a damaged lawn. A stressed lawn is subject to weeds, grubs, and complete die-off if the root systems are severely damaged. To water a brown lawn back to health, start with a steady watering schedule — typically 2 hours every few days (approximately 1 inch of water) — and be careful not to over-water. It may take a lawn 3-4 weeks to return to its beautiful green color. Areas that are in really bad shape may need to be reseeded, but experts advise waitng until the cooler fall weather so that the new grass isn't just burned up in the heat.

St. Charles, Geneva and Batavia Watering Time Limits through August 31:  Even numbered addresses may sprinkle on even-numbered days,  odd numbered addresses may sprinkle on odd- numbered days, from 12 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.. No watering from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Hand watering of pots and gardens is allowed at any time. Newly seeded or sodded lawns may be watered more often by special permit so contact your local water department for more information.

Hi Leslie,

Excellent post. We have just gone back to Stage 1 watering as we have had a lot of rain lately..so we can water twice a week instead of only once. We still need many more days of rain..but finally getting some much needed rain in Austin. I hope the same happens for your area soon:).

We have had 10 days of rain here in Lake Charles which has halted construction projects but healthy for the yards!  My yard is not crunchy this year from drought instead I have to re-sod due to pool construction (sigh)
