Public Service Announcement 2
July is Smart Irrigation Month. Since July is a peak month for outdoor water use, it’s a good time to evaluate your sprinkler system. A system audit can detect leaks and uneven watering, which waste water and can damage your lawn. Visit irrigation-dot-org to find a certified irrigation auditor or contractor.

Public Service Announcement 4
Less is more when watering your lawn. Watering too much and too often results in shallow roots, weed growth, disease and fungus. Water long enough to soak down to the root zone, and don’t water again until the soil is dry. A rule of thumb: If the grass springs back when you step on it, it has enough water.

Public Service Announcement 5
Slow the flow. The greatest waste of water in lawn and landscape irrigation comes from watering too much, too fast. Instead of watering 20 consecutive minutes, run sprinklers in four five-minute sessions. This allows water to soak into the soil and minimizes runoff. July is Smart Irrigation Month.

Public Service Announcement 6
July is Smart Irrigation Month. July is a peak month for outdoor water use and a good time to make sure you’re using irrigation efficiently. A rain shut-off device is an inexpensive gadget to add to your sprinkler system to prevent it from running in the rain. You can also improve efficiency by watering at the coolest time of the day. When it’s hot or windy, more than a third of the water can be lost to evaporation. For more information, go to Smart Irrigation Month-dot-org.
