How deep should perennials, annuals, and lawn be watered?

"I have just read your pamphlet (online) on how to water trees and shrubs. The article states that trees and shrubs should be watered to a depth of 18-20 inches. How deep should perennials, annuals, and lawn be watered?"
As the online bulletin suggests, I would water your trees and shrubs to an average depth of about 18-20 inches. I would encourage you to water your lawn to a depth of about 6 inches- if your soil is that deep. Your perennials and annuals should be watered to a depth of about 6-8 inches (similar to turfgrass or a little deeper if they will be competing with the turfgrass for water).
