A sprinkler system makes it easy to ensure your lawn gets the water it needs to thrive. Try these tips for best results from your sprinkler system. Here’s how to make the most of your sprinkler system.

Wait before watering. Don’t turn on your sprinkler system just because it’s been a few days since the last watering. Instead, wait to see signs of drought stress in the grass, like the color turning from green to blue-ish gray, wilting, or footprints remaining visible. Allowing grass to experience a small degree of water stress after you’ve given it a deep watering actually encourages roots to grow farther down in search of moisture, rather than staying at the surface. As soon as you begin to see signs of stress, water the lawn deeply again.

Water early in the day. Run the sprinkler system during pre-dawn hours for most efficient watering, as the lawn will lose less moisture to evaporation from the sun and heat. Avoid night watering, though, as watering after dark will cause grass blades to remain moist overnight, making them more susceptible to fungal diseases.
