I spoke to an irrigation guy today. When people build a new house, he suggests investing in soil rather than irrigation systems. With a foot of good top soil you probably won’t need to add much water. Most new homes have a few inches of topsoil and need watering more often than we would like, which is deeply and infrequently. There is no deep soil to hold water and roots.
When I visit a new lawn, I can often determine soil conditions by how the grass is growing. Where the grass struggles, the soil is often different from areas where the grass is doing well. It could be drier, compacted and lacking organic matter.
The best way to begin a lawn improvement program is with a soil analysis that measures the chemical and physical characteristics of the soil.
