Don’t Wet Your Plants…Incorrectly!

How much water should I use?
The amount of water to apply depends on the soil type
and the wetness of the soil. The preferable method is to
thoroughly wet the soil down to a depth of 5 inches. If
the soil is very dry initially, it may take ½ inch of water.
You will need to determine how uniformly and how much
water is applied in a normal irrigation cycle. Second,
remember water should not be allowed to run off the
surface or to form puddles, because these lead to poor
distribution and efficiency of water.
When is the best time to water?
The most efficient time to water lawns is earlv in the
morning hours from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. At that time, less
water is lost to evaporation because of lower
temperatures and less sunlight. Also, winds are lighter
than later in the day, so distribution is improved. There is
also less risk of fungus issues setting in when watering
at this time.
