Ken’s Quick Tip: Summer Watering Guide

The first day of summer is one week from today, so it’s time to get ready to update your sprinkler’s settings to make sure you are getting adequate water coverage for your lawn and landscape in North Texas.

How much should you water in the summer?

During the summer, water two days per week and run your system with three start times, 2am, 4am and 6am on each day and 10 minutes each start time. That gives you a total of 60 minutes per week for each zone (Set rotary heads to 20 minutes for a total of 120 minutes.) We recommend watering in the morning because it is cooler so you’ll have less evaporation plus there is less wind which can blow your water onto your drive way, sidewalk, or street. Watering in the morning will mean more water ends up in your lawn which is both environmentally and financially smart.
