Know Your Irrigation SystemIt only takes 3/4 of an inch of water at each application to make your lawn happy. Adjust your irrigation system accordingly. Water less often in cooler months and when rainfall is consistent. Try waiting longer between irrigations to see if plants can tolerate less water.

Learn how to set and change the timer and adjust it according to season and weather conditions, or let a soil moisture sensor do it for you.
