For the week of
We are in the heat of Summer! Now is the time to be mowing
your lawn at a taller mow height. We recommend mowing lawns
at a minimum of three inches in the heat of summer to ensure
the turf stays cool.
Based on current weather conditions, turf grass needs about
of water this week. Additionally, the weather forecast is
calling for temperatures to remain high, so monitor your
lawn and adjust your watering accordingly.
Different sprinklers apply water at different rates, but as
an approximate guideline, you would need to run standard
spray sprinklers a total of about 42 minutes
for the week. Rotors apply water more slowly, so they need
to run around 100 minutes over the course
of the week to apply the same amount of water. If you have
multi-stream rotators, you need to run those for 156
minutes for the week.
To determine how long to run sprinklers each watering day,
divide the total minutes we’ve given by the number of days
you will be watering this week. For example, if you water
4 days per week, you would run spray
sprinklers for 10 minutes each watering day
to apply the needed amount of water. Typical rotors would
need to run 25 minutes on each watering day
and multi-stream rotators for 39 minutes
each watering day.
Additionally, instead of applying all the water in one
cycle, break up the watering into three shorter
cycles separated by an hour or so.
That would mean running spray sprinklers 3 minutes
each cycle, rotor sprinklers for 8 minutes
and multi-stream rotators 13 minutes. This
will help the water penetrate deeper into the soil.
