In winter, even though your lawn and plants are dormant, your soil still needs consistent watering to keep it healthy. One of the biggest mistakes you can make with your lawn’s overall health is to turn your sprinkler system off during our winter months.
We recommend that you water one ten-minute burst one day per week during the winter.
Also, keep in mind that many of the newer sprinkler controllers have a seasonal adjustment which 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 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 1 to 2 minutes per day in the winter.) 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.
