Using this warm couple days would be great to add some water to your lawn.But it just rained you say. YES — but only .5inch or less in most cases. By watering another 1/2 inch now you will be getting the benefit of 1″ of rain with only 1/2 the water usage. If you put a half inch down today — You would be set until some warm day in January. 1″ of water is infinitely more helpful to your lawn than a half inch because it feed and encourages deep roots.Also – don’t forget to soak any shrubs or trees planted within the last season or two. Put a slow drip on them and you’ll be rewarded with better plants. Its hard to rely on snowfall for winter watering because so much of it runs off the surface. Use your hose when you can!
