Fall Watering Guide

In fall, your soil loses about ½ the water it loses in the summer, so the easiest thing to do is to set the controller to only one day per week with three 10-minute bursts.

We recommend that you water in ten-minute bursts one day per week at 2 am, 4 am, and 6 am during the fall.

If your controller has a seasonal adjust percentage, you can set it to 50% of your summer watering schedule These guidelines are for full sun areas. In shaded areas, reduce by half (or more if you have a lot of shade.)

Important Note for Rotary Head Sprinklers and Drip Systems: If you have rotary head sprinklers (they slowly turn and send out long streams of water), we recommend running twice as long as you would regular sprinklers since it takes them longer to put out the same amount of water. Drip Zones (drip systems work by maintaining a level of moisture in the soil.) We recommend that they run daily or close to it (roughly 5 minutes per day in the fall.) Since various drip lines water slightly differently, it is important to pay attention to your beds to ensure they get the appropriate amount of water.
