Save Water – Irrigation Control

Adjust your irrigation system to not over water your yard.  There are a few things to target:

  • Water every 2nd or 3rd day for slightly longer times than if you water daily.  If you water less frequently and deeper, the root structure of your grass will grow deeper and be able to handle dry spells better.  Happy grass!
  • Reduce the time you water until the grass is slightly stressed (some minor yellowing around the edges).  Many lawns are over watered and grass is  resilient to some stress.

If your current sprinkler control is a pain in the butt to program, I really like Orbit’s line (Amazon link) for it’s simplicity.  Changing out a control panel is not difficult, but you should be handy.  Have fun learning something new!
