Congratulations on the completion of your new irrigation system!
For the first 30 days, your system should be set to water every day for a minimum of 20-45 minutes per zone of rotating heads based on the weather. Spot seeding will help fill in disturbed areas faster. Zones with mist/spray heads (that do not rotate) need less time- only 5-15 minutes. After this period, a recommended schedule is every other day (odd or even corresponding to your house number) for same duration.
As the season goes on, you may notice that different parts of your property need more or less watering time based on sun exposure and slope. Remember- each zone can be changed individually. Please adjust these zones on the timer accordingly
As the temperature rises and there is less rain, your lawn will need more water. You will need to change the timer settings for more time and frequency, and less time and frequency as we approach the fall.
The best time to water is in the early morning. This reduces fungus growth and rapid evaporation.
Every year, you must winterize the irrigation system. Your quoted price is on your contract. This should be done in October, before the first frost. We will e-mail you a reminder.
Thank you for your business, and please feel free to call us with any questions.
