Use the cycle and soak irrigation method to water your lawn:
Some lawns require more or less water, depending upon the type of grass. Adding or removing one minute from the watering time will change the amount of water you use by 25 percent.
Drip irrigation is needed less frequently than sprinkler irrigation. During spring, SNWA recommends running your drip irrigation system in a single cycle of 30 to 90 minutes, two days a week. The length of each watering should be determined by the emitter flow rate, soil type and weather conditions. See our drip watering tips for details.
If your plants appear stressed, check the soil moisture. If the soil is wet, your plants may be over watered. Water less often or for less time.
Don't forget to set your irrigation clock ahead an hour when daylight saving time begins on the second Sunday in March at 2 a.m. This also is a great time to check your clock's batteries.
