Does My Yard Need a Watering System?

Irrigation systems nourish your yard with just the right amount of water, in the rights areas, at the right time – making them the perfect solution for both under- or over-watered yards. Common signs of an under-watered yard include: 

  • Dry soil
  • Slow blade growth
  • Wilted or crisp blades
  • Grass that is slow to spring back when stepped on

On the flip side, overwatering can be just as, if not more, harmful to your yard. Too much water makes your yard susceptible to diseases like root rot, moss, powdery mildew and brown patch lawn disease. Signs of an over-watered yard include:

  • Wilted or limp blades
  • Thick growth, often requiring increased mowing
  • Lawn is soggy for a long period of time

What Watering Schedule is Right for Me?

Two major factors affect the recommended watering schedule  for your yard - the age of your lawn and the time of year.

Existing Lawns

Existing lawns have more established, stronger  roots than newly laid sod, therefore requiring less water.

  • Water every other day during the spring and fall
  • Water 5-6 times a week during the summer
  • Ideal watering time between 3-6am and 6-8pm

Fresh Sod

Newly seeded areas require more frequent watering, especially during the grow-in period.

  • For the first few weeks, water twice a day
  • After grow-in period, decrease to once a day
  • Ideal watering time between 3-6am and 6-8pm

Proper Watering Duration

Recommended duration times vary according to the type of sprinkler head. Most professional lawn irrigation companies offer two different sprinkler heads – spray and rotor heads.

  • Spray heads- 5-10 minutes per cycle
  • Rotor heads- 20-30 minutes per cycle
