Does My Bermuda Lawn Need Irrigation During Winter?

Q: Does my bermuda lawn need irrigation when it’s gone dormant for the
winter months? 

A: No. The only time to irrigate a lawn, winter or summer, is when the soil is
dry for more than seven days. On average, lawns need one inch of irrigation
water (or rain) every seven days in summer. All of the water should be applied
in one day, so the soil can dry out between waterings. It is doubtful your soil
ever dries completely in winter, so there’s no need to irrigate now.
