Q: How often should I water my lawn after planting grass seed?

A: During the germination period, you should water the area enough to keep the top 1/4 inch of soil moist. Most seed will germinate within two weeks of planting, but this will largely depend on the type of seed you are planting. Once the seed has germinated, maintain a consistent watering schedule, accounting for current weather conditions. Over-watering can cause grass disease problems, so it’s important to monitor soil saturation when maintaining your lawn. The best time to water your grass is between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. If possible, you should avoid watering in the evening.

escutcheon, some of which are held on the stem with a nut, while others are threaded onto the faucet stem and simply unscrew. The bonnet nuts in shower handles are recessed behind the shower wall, and you’ll need a deep-socket plumbing wrench to unscrew them. (You can by a set of the wrenches at Harbor Freight for about $10). Remove the stem to expose the seat washer. Remove the retaining screw, replace the washer with a new washer of matching size, screw it back on and coat it with heat-proof faucet grease. Reinstall the stem.
