Overall Water Management
Most residential property owners use excessive amounts of water to keep their turf and landscape green and fresh, costing them more money than is necessary. By learning to water your lawn properly with the help of a watering system, you can conserve a significant amount of water and still get the healthy beautiful lawn you want.
Recommended Watering Schedule
Established lawns require far less water than newly sodded or freshly seeded areas. For the cooler spring and fall seasons, we suggest decreasing watering to every other day.
For the hotter summer months, we recommend that you water five to six times a week. Watering between 3-6AM is the ideal time to take advantage of the coolest time of the morning but completing prior to sunrise to allow the water to infiltrate the soil as much as possible.
For newly installed sod, we recommend that you water at least two times each day. In the case of extreme heat, it might be necessary to add a third water cycle. Once the grow-in period of a few weeks has passed, it is recommended to reduce the watering frequency.
For twice a day watering, schedule your system for 3-6AM and 6-8PM.
Recommended Water Duration
A lawn irrigation system from Professional Irrigation Systems includes two different types of sprinkler heads – spray heads and rotor heads – distributing two different amounts of water per area.
Zones consisting of spray heads typically require about 5-10 minutes of run time per cycle .
Zones consisting of rotor heads typically require about 20-30 minutes of run time per cycle.
