Spring officially arrives in North Texas on Sunday, March 20 which means it is time to update your sprinkler controller for spring watering.
HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU WATER THIS SPRING?
In spring, your lawn and plants are coming out of dormancy from the winter and your soil needs
consistent watering. One of the biggest mistakes you can make with your lawn’s overall health is to not water properly for the season.
We recommend that you water in 10 minute bursts one day per week at 2 am, 4 am, and 6 am during the spring. Download our watering guide (feel free to share it with family and friends!)
Also, keep in mind that many of the newer sprinkler controllers have a seasonal adjustment which is easy to use with our watering guidelines.
Important Note for Rotary Head Sprinklers and Drip Systems:
If you have rotary head sprinklers (they slowly turn and send out long streams of water), we recommend running twice as long as you would regular sprinklers since it takes them longer to put out the same amount of water. Drip Zones (drip systems work by maintaining a level of moisture in the soil.) We recommend that in the spring they run one day per week for ten-minutes. Since various drip lines water slightly differently, it is important to pay attention to your beds to ensure they get the appropriate amount of water.
