Many backyards are not as green as their owners would like them to be this summer.

With another heat wave slated for the second half of this week and into the weekend, the grass is definitely not going to be greener. Temperatures range from 30 to 35 degrees into the next week. Without any moisture, backyard owners may need to provide water for their lawn.

“It is best if you can water the grass in the morning or in the evening. The morning is even better than the evening because the water doesn’t evaporate nearly as quickly and you get more value out of your water, ”says Paul Kneeshaw, owner of Misty Gardens.

Not only does the lawn have to be cared for in this drought, the garden and trees also have to be cared for. The problem for most people is that they have to pay the water bill after a long bath in the lawn or garden.

An alternative method would be to fill up a water tank on a truck or trailer at a gas station, which can cost some money out of your pocket.
