SKIP A WEEK

Para español

Reduce your watering during the cooler winter months

Did you know that during the cooler winter months your lawn doesn't need watering every week? The grass goes dormant. So, skip a week. Water your lawn every other week and only if it is needs it.

 

It's as easy as OFF and ON
Just set your irrigation timer to the OFF position the week you don't want to water and then back to ON for the week you do.

 

Watering too much when it's cooler …

  • Makes your lawn less able to survive droughts
  • Encourages pests and diseases to your lawn 
  • Wastes water

Grass doesn't need as much water in the cooler winter months. Apply ½ to ¾ inch of water every 10 to 14 days if needed.

 

It's time to water when grass blades …

  • Are folded in half lengthwise on at least one-third of your yard.
  • Have a blue-grey color.
  • Do not spring back, leaving footprints on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it.
