Daylight Savings Time is upon us and it’s time to spring ahead one hour. We lose one hour of sleep and it takes a few days to adjust to the change, but having an extra hour of daylight in the evening is always nice!
So as you go changing your clocks around the house, you should also remember to check a clock that most people forget – your Irrigation Timer! Watering at the wrong time can have a negative impact on the health of your landscape. You should finish watering your landscape right around sunrise to ensure the landscape has time to soak up the water and any additional water evaporates as the sun rises.
Did you know that some Water Management Districts, like the St. John’s Water Management District, have their watering restrictions coinciding with Daylight Savings Time? So it’s important that you check the Water Management District where you live to ensure you’re not violating any restrictions.
Also, this is the perfect time to get your Irrigation System checked – we offer Free Irrigation Audits if you need yours checked.
Oh, and don’t forget to change your alarm clock too – you don’t want to be late for work on Monday!
