The main reason is to avoid getting the grass burnt out because of the heat and also to avoid any setting in of any fungus in the grass. Constant watering will also maintain a healthy lawn and will strengthen the roots of the grass as it will go down deeper in search for water. If you water your lawn for a short period of time, the tendency is that the roots will go up in search for the water that is not sufficient enough to reach the roots below. This will lead to a poor lawn that will eventually be destroyed or burned by the heat due to lack of hydration.
However, water is not the only source of the growth and beauty of grasses or any plant. A fertilizer also has significant contribution in making luscious and healthy grasses on your backyard. When using a fertilizer, always keep in mind to follow the instruction and avoid putting too much, instead, slowly release small amounts of fertilizer to avoid any burns on your lawn. Always read the label and the instructions as to know whether it is safe to use or not. Refrain from stepping on your lawn for 24 hours upon usage of the fertilizer.
