Rain is a good thing for your Atlanta turf, in fact water is the most important component needed.  Without water, your turf simply won’t survive.  Your Atlanta lawn needs water for three basic reasons.

 

  1. Water maintains the internal pressure of the plant. When water is not received, the pressure inside collapses resulting in wilted grass.
  2. Water serves as a transport channel for nutrients, composition and regulation inside the grass plant as well expelling waste products produced by the plant.
  3. A percentage of the water intake is used to make plant foods such as sugars and starches for the metabolization use of the turf grass plant.
