    Early morning is best anywhere.

    Early morning, before you get up to shower. You want it to wash the dew off the grass.

    If you water in the evening or late at night you risk the yard being wet too long and developing fungal problems.

    ohh ok i always thought that if u watered at night u gave the grass a longer period of time to absorb the water and therefore use it the best
