New seasons, new watering schedule.
When it comes to watering, less means more. Between April 1 and Oct. 31, set your sprinkler’s control box to manual and water only when needed. It’s a good idea to check with your local water provider for watering guidelines specific to your city. And in most cases, watering ONCE A WEEK IS JUST ENOUGH. Remember: No matter the season, every drop matters!
