Now that the weather is heating up, we could all use some help in keeping our lawns more healthy and green. I came across a bit of useful information a couple years ago. I have been trying this watering strategy out and it seems to work. In Colorado, we have a very clay based soil and only so much water can be absorbed at any given time. This is why when you drive through neighborhoods you see large amounts of water running in the gutters. The watering technic I find works well is to water as follows;

1. Water each station for a max of 10 minutes. Pretty much anything beyond that is simply running water down the street and doing your lawn no good.

2. Set your system for a second round of watering about an hour later. This gives the initial watering time to be absorbed into the soil and creates a sponge type effect for the second watering, where the water is pulled deep into the soil and basically gets down to the roots of the grass.

This watering should be done very early in the morning and later in the evening to create maximum effect. Some really hard and dry areas may require a bit of hand watering, but this is a good overall routine.

Try this method and may your lawn be greener and healthier from now on.
