Right about now, you are getting your sprinkler system started. If you haven’t called Impeccable Landscapes to get your sprinkler system started up yet, we highly recommend that you do soon so that you can start watering your lawn to get that healthy look you have been waiting to see all winter . When you have a sprinkler system in your landscape, you may not be paying attention to how much water that your lawn is getting so we thought that we would talk about how to properly water your lawn with your sprinkler system.

How Much

For grass to grow healthy and strong it needs at least 1-1.5 inches of water a week. You might be asking “how long do I have to water to get an inch or an inch and a half?” Next time you water, place a can on your lawn where water can get in. Time how long it will take to get a half inch of water in the can. It should take about 30 minutes.If you wanted to, you could water deeply two or three times a week instead of every day. This means that you will set your sprinkler system to water for about 20-30 minutes three days a week.

When to water

Starting after the last freeze of the year, you will want to start your watering regimen of 20-30 minutes a day, three days a week. It is better for your lawn and your wallet if you water during the cooler parts of the day. Set your sprinkler system to run overnight or before 10am.
