Save Water & Save $$$
Monday, April 25, 2005

Water your lawn only when it needs it.  The amount of rainfall your area receives should dictate how often you water your lawn and how much water you apply.  A hearty rain eliminates the need for watering for as long as two weeks.  Water lawns during the early morning or early evening hours when temperature and wind speed are lowest.  This reduces losses from evaporation that can occur during the middle of the day.  This also allows the water to seep into the ground to the grass and plant roots, promoting healthier plants with deep root systems. Become familiar with the watering restrictions in your area.  Standard restrictions include no irrigation between 10:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M.
