Water conservation is the most cost-effective and environmentally sound way to reduce our overall demand for water. You can improve your lawn sprinkler system's efficiency to ensure a green lawn, while conserving water. Lawn watering requirements vary depending on the type of grass that you have. One of the most common mistakes people make is over-watering. Georgetown, Round Rock and Cedar Park have differing soil from one another. This also makes a big difference in watering needs and how to set your controller.

The integrity of your lawn sprinkler system plays a large factor in water conservation during lawn watering.

Below are just a few watering tips that can be used to reduce water consumption. If you have other questions about this topic always feel free to contact us.

  • It is best to water 2-3 times per week with a weekly total of approximately 1 inch per week. Keeping this recommendation in mind, sprinkler zones with regular pop-up spray nozzles should be run approximately 10 minutes at a time and rotor nozzles should be run approximately 20-30 minutes at a time.
  • Water in short increments multiple times versus a single deep/long watering. Watering for extended periods of time causes a lot of run-off and is not as efficient as multiple program start times. Using two start times on your controller will increase efficiency in absorption and reduce run-off.
  • Have you had a professional perform a sprinkler system check-up within the last year?

The above information is a useful guideline, but may vary significantly given that every situation is unique.

The system you have and the landscaping you have must always be taken into account. If you aren't sure how to set your controller for multiple run times, feel free to contact us and we will assist you.
