A properly adjusted irrigation system is essential to a healthy, green landscape.
Sprinkler heads that are not properly adjusted are most likely wasting water, running up your bill and actually doing more harm than good.
- To achieve the best water coverage, make sure the water from each sprinkler head sprays all the way to the next one, in each direction. This is called “head-to-head coverage” and it applies to both rotor heads and spray heads.
- Position heads so water lands on the lawn and shrubs and not on paved areas.
- Water lawns during the early morning hours when temperatures and wind speed are the lowest. This reduces evaporation and waste.
- Also, check your sprinkler heads every month to make sure your landscape stays healthy and green and to make sure that water isn’t wasted.
