Typically in SE Idaho, you will only need to water your lawn from May through September. The average ET (Evapo Transpiration) rate, which means the rate at which water is being sucked from your lawn is depicted in the table below. This is about how much water your lawn will need. The easiest way to measure how much water your lawn is getting is to take a tuna can out and water until it contains the desired inches. One last thing to take into consideration is the amount of rain your lawn is receiving, because this counts toward your water needed. For example, if you get 1 inch of rain the first week in July, you will only need to water an additional inch for that week. Questions? Post them below!
