Water once a week but let it soak deep. Roots extend deeper in the soil when following this rule. Otherwise, frequent shallow waterings tend to unsightly webs of dry brown runners just above the soil. Figuring out how much your lawn needs depends on the soil type. Sandy soils dry out quicker while clay soils hold moisture for longer periods of time and will not require as much water.
Newly seeded lawns will need water every day for 5-10 minutes only. Dampen the seeds without causing runoff that might wash them away or damage the surface with gullies. After the seeds sprout and the new grass is a half inch tall, water once a day for 15 to 20 minutes.
