January 2, 2020thafler There are ways to have an emerald green turf like this one without wasting water. This grass is called sheep fescue. It’s easy to germinate, share tolerant and it only needs water once a week once established. Believe it or not, there are no sprinklers on this lawn, only drip tubing which we installed underground that supplies water directly to the roots, preventing evaporation and saving even more water! It’s also a much better solution for providing deep watering to the existing mulberry tree, and there’s no trenching required.
