How much time do I run my sprinklers to water my lawn effectively?

Chances are your professional contractor programmed the controller when they were finished installing the system. They probably also gave you a schedule (or schedules) you could enter into the controller during different seasons of the year. If not, you should contact an irrigation professional in your area who can give you guidance as to the number of minutes each zone should water, and on how many days of the week.

Each climate has different requirements; each plant material will have varying needs, as well. In addition, be sure to account for the fact that different types of sprinklers apply water at varying rates.

Benefits of installing a “Smart” controller and sensor on your sprinkler system

With automatic timers on most underground sprinkler systems, it is easy to forget to turn off those systems during rainstorms or extended periods of rainy weather. In times of cooler temperatures system operation should be scaled back. However, all too often sprinkler systems are running full force while it is raining or running their summer (high output) schedule during the spring, fall and winter.

Water is wasted and many lawns are over-watered. Water District officials say over-watering is the most frequent mistake homeowners make in lawn care. Too much water promotes a shallow root system, which causes grass and plants to become vulnerable to hot/dry weather. The demand for water is ever-increasing.

Residents and business owners are urged by water district operators to install the new “Smart” controllers.
