During dry winters, turf mites are one of the reasons it is crucial to keep your yard watered all year long. That is not the only reason, though. For the overall life and longevity of your trees, shrubs, plants and other landscaping, it is important to keep your lawn hydrated throughout the year, even in the cold climates. Failure to do so can injure your landscaping long term. There are a few conditions to watering. In Colorado State University’s Fall and Winter Watering, they tell homeowners to water lawns when the temperature is 40 degrees or higher. When watering, you should only water in the middle of the day so the water is less likely to freeze.
