Additionally, here are some tips on how to maximize the watering of your lawn during this dry, hot conditions: 
•    The optimal time to water your lawn is early morning as this minimizes the evaporation of the water through wind and/or sun.
•    Typically, you should be watering your lawn 2 to 3 times per week and up to 4 times per week when the weather is hot and dry.
•    The general rule of thumb is that your lawn needs about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water per week in order to maintain its healthy growth.
•    Maintaining the appropriate mowing height for your grass is also important as it helps to not only conserve water, but works in conjunction with proper watering habits to keep it healthy.  The recommended height to mow is between 3 to 3 1/2 inches throughout the summer months.
•    Also, leaving the grass clippings on your lawn helps to cool down your lawn as well as keeping the moisture in the soil.  This also allows the nutrients to go back into your turf from the clippings.
•    Be careful of overwatering your lawn, as that can compromise the health of your lawn and result in possible fungal growth and common lawn diseases.
•    When your grass is underwatered, there will be a slight change in the green color to a blue-gray tint.  This is just before it starts to turn brown and dry up.
