How can you save water and money with your sprinkler system?
5 to 10 am are the sweet spots for sprinklers. Cooler morning temperatures keep the water from evaporating due to the heat of the sun. Short watering cycles/15-minute breaks are the best practice.
Set your watering schedule based on your garden’s layout: lawns watered more than trees, etc.
Containers, shrubs and beds of flowers are better targeted with drip irrigation because it has the ability to pinpoint moisture efficiently for the root systems of every plant, and reduces water loss.
Your lawn requires more water in the Summer than Winter; adjust your usage accordingly!
