Spring Watering Guide for North Texas

In spring, your lawn and plants are coming out of dormancy from the winter and your soil needs consistent watering. One of the biggest mistakes you can make with your lawn’s overall health is to not water properly for the season.

We recommend that you water in 10 minute bursts one day per week at 2 am, 4 am, and 6 am during spring.

These guidelines are for full sun areas. In shaded areas, reduce by half (or more if you have a lot of shade.) Also, remember that many of the newer sprinkler controllers have a seasonal adjustment that is easy to use with our watering guidelines.

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 regular sprinklers since it takes them longer to put out the same amount of water. Drip Zones (drip systems work by maintaining moisture in the soil.) We recommend that they run three days per week in the spring for ten minutes. Since various drip lines water slightly differently, paying attention to your beds is vital to ensure they get the appropriate amount of water.
