If One Area of My Lawn Has a Puddle of Water, Should I Still Water? That is the question.
If one area of your lawn has a puddle of water, it is not necessary to water that area until the water has had a chance to drain away. Overwatering can lead to waterlogging, which can deprive the roots of oxygen and cause them to rot. This can lead to unhealthy grass, root damage, and even dead spots in your lawn.
If your lawn has poor drainage and you frequently experience puddling or standing water, you may want to consider improving the drainage in that area. This can be done by adding soil amendments such as compost or sand to improve soil structure and drainage, or by installing a drainage system such as French drains or a dry well.
In general, it's best to water your lawn deeply and infrequently, rather than giving it light, frequent waterings. This promotes deep root growth and helps the grass to withstand drought conditions. When watering, it's important to adjust the frequency and duration based on weather conditions, soil type, and other factors to avoid overwatering and promote healthy grass growth.
