    Please go away like you promised because all you are doing now is embarrassing yourself.

    Wow. I log in and find 8 pages worth of comments. I think, 'cool, there must be some good discussion going on here.' All I find is an endless pissing match with a little juvenile name calling peppered in.

    At least there's some conflicting viewpoints to chew on.

    Watering at night promotes the growth of fungi such as moss.

    On another note, I just cut my lawn two days ago, at 5.25"
    Read: I NEVER water.
    We can't afford to, the world is running out of fresh water as you read this.
    The average American household consumes 100 gallons of water a day.
    Ours uses 50.

    But mine's one of the nicest lawns on the block.
    I cut it about every two weeks.

    Things do get a bit agricultural between cuts :p

    I used 12,000 gallons of water last month, 2 times the amount I normally use. I have had water bills that were over $200...my average bill is about $40-$50.

    I water in the evening and get better results than if I were to water at 7-8 am. I only water if there is severe drought stress and when i water at night the grass absorbs the water and is able to tolerate the heat the next couple of days vs watering in the morning the grass doesnt absorb the water and the lawn is ferther stressed.
