Timing is Everything

Know how much water your landscape actually needs before you set your sprinkler. A clock-timer-controlled irrigation system that isn’t properly programmed or maintained can waste as much as 30,000 gallons of water annually.  Most lawns only require ½” to ¾” of water each week.  You can conduct a catch can test to determine each zone’s output and optimal run times. Generally, it’s best to water lawns in the early morning to reduce evaporation losses during the heat of the day, as well as minimize extended periods of wet grass that can lead to fungus.
