Info of Lawn Sprinkler System

As you think about ways to make the most of your lawn irrigation system, here are some industry tips to help you have a beautiful lawn and efficient sprinkler system.

  1. Get a timer and then set it to either water late in the day or early in the morning. Experts agree that either on is fine, as this way the earth can soak in as much of the water as possible. Watering during the day will result in the heated air absorbing a significant amount of the water.
  2. Determine just how much water is being put on your lawn. The average yard needs no more than 1 inch of water per week. You can determine how much water is being spread by setting empty tuna cans, measuring cups or even a cupcake pan set out on level ground.
  3. Get rid of weeds, fungus or lawn diseases as they can suck up as much as 40% of the water you are sending out. Weeds and fungus using a water, salt and vinegar mixture sprayed directly on the plants.
  4. Install a rain sensor so that your sprinkler system will not engage when it is already raining.
  5. Be sure you can change the settings on your system so that you only water when needed. Just by doing this, you can minimize the amount of water used by 20 to 50 percent.
  6. Take time to do maintenance checks on your system. Be sure the lines are cleaned, the heads are extending as they should, and that there are not any broken valves or heads. Any of these can result in patchy areas in your yard or the excess use of water.
