Watering Check - Taking a Core Sample

Before watering your lawn, it is good practice to cut a small core sample to check soil moisture. Here's how...

  • Simply cut a small piece of turf approx. 2 inches by 2 inches by 3 inches deep.
  • Check the soil moisture at 2 inches deep (where the roots are).
  • If it is damp there is no need to water. If it is dry then it is time to get the sprinkler out!
  • Afterward, pop the core sample back into the lawn and press it down.

Overwatering a lawn can be just as harmful as underwatering a lawn. Taking a core sample will help you make the right watering decision!
