Now is also the time to consider a WaterSense-labeled, weather-based irrigation timer that automatically adjusts your landscape watering according to weather conditions so you don’t have to.

In fact, experts estimate that as much as 50 percent outdoor watering is wasted because of over watering caused by inefficiencies in irrigation methods and systems. Irrigation control technologies can significantly reduce over watering by applying water only when plants need it.

EASY WAY TO TELL IF YOUR LANDSCAPE NEEDS WATER
Hint: Requires a screwdriver

Looking for an easy way to see if your landscapes needs water? Simply probe your lawn with a screwdriver. If it goes into the soil easily, that indicates sufficient moisture. If the screwdriver can’t probe the soil, apply water to that area. This is a good tip to have year round, but especially important with intermittent rainfall.
