Experts say lawns still need to be watered this time of year

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

The lack of moisture and windy conditions are drying out lawns across Southern Colorado. 

Experts say lawns still need to be watered, even if homeowners have already drained their sprinkler systems. A good hand dousing is what experts recommend for most grass.

This will not only help keep fire danger low, but will help those healthy lawns continue to grow. 

"Once or twice a month, once the temperature reaches forty eight degrees or above, you can go ahead and pull your hose out,  When you're done, make sure you disconnect the hose, roll it up, get the water out," said Mike Spencer of Spencer's Lawn and Garden.

Although the lawn is the main focus, experts say not to forget the trees and shrubs, they need a drink of water at least once a month as well.
