HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH PVWDER Absolutely Pure Tho only baking powder made from Royal Crape Cream of Tartar *1 alum.no lime phosphate BHD WATERING IF" LAWNS ROUS TIM Gentle Soaking Spray Once a Week Better Than Hap hazard Wetting Bad watering is the cause of almost as many poor lawns as droughts, ac cording to the lanscape gardener of the Untied States Department of Agri culture. Frequent watering of merely Uie surface of the grass makes the roots of the grass grow near the sur face and these roots should be made to grow down as deeply as possible in order to secure a line lawn that will resist the hottest weather of summer. The best method of watering the grass is to apply a spray for from six to twelve hours, the stream being so gentle that water will not collect in sufficient quantities to run off. The water will then sink down into the soil and the roots will grow to a greater depth. When this method is used the lawn should not be watered oftener than twice a week, and then the ground should be soaked so that the water penetrates for several inches be neath the surface. As a general rule watering once a week is sufficient to keep a lawn in good condition. The man who enjoys watering his lawn in the evening for a half hour after returning from work will prob ably prefer this method to leaving the stream on for a number of hours once a week. If he will divide his lawn area .in six parts and confine his at tention to a different part each even ing ho will obtain practically the same results in the long run. Haphazard watering every evening is not advis able. He should be careful, also, to use merely a gentle spray and not continue watering to such an extent that water runs off, as such water does no good. In fact. It may do harm for it may remove loose dirt from the grass roots and expose them to drought. The strong stream of a hose should not be used, as it helps to ex pose the roots unnecessarily. Many people wonder why drought dries up their lawns in July after they have taken what they consider to be good care of them. The combination of hot winds and dry weather makes July undoubtedly the hardest month for lawns, and when the rodts of the grass are encouraged to grow near the surface by bad watering and the loose dirt is also removed from them by a hose of strong water power the results are more disastrous then if the lawn had been left alone.
