Reviewer 2 Report

The abstract:

1.The acronyms should not appear in the abstract, E.g. L12, L13 and so on

2.Keywords are not sufficient to reflect the subject of the article. Please corrections it.

3.The support for the conclusions in lines 29-30 is not clear from the rest of the abstract.

The introduction:

1.The reference format of the introduction is incorrect, please correct it according to the requirements mentioned in the “Introduction to author” document.

2.It appears relevant publications after 2020 are missing from the list of references.

3.Description of subsurface drip irrigation has not promoted the development of this study and should be rewritten this part.

4. The introduction needs to be modified more logical, closer to the research content, in order to facilitate readers to understand.

Materials and Methods

1. There are many variables in the research process, such as the irrigations number, the total amount of irrigation, and how they are controlled?

2. Lines161: should be g•m-2 instead of g•m-2, and L226 L228 also has the same problem.

3. The format of the references is incorrect.

Results and Discussion

1.Conclusion and discussion did not specify the dry matter yield, plant height and other indicators of significant differences, it is recommended to add to make the article more comprehensive.

2. The introduction points out that the main research contents of the article are “to investigate the water usage and visual quality of warm season (Bermuda grass) and cool season turfgrass mix (10% Poa pratensis……..” The conclusions of the manuscript do not reflect the results of the second major inquiry

Other comments

1.The format of the article should be adjusted according to the requirements of “Water”, especially the format of the Reference and Tables.


2. The titles of Table 3 and Table 4 need to be corrected and should include specific content rather than general summary.
