If you have an automated home irrigation system, it’s important to adjust the timer now that we have started daylight savings time.
Consult the manual that came with your system or contact an irrigation professional if you have trouble.
Now is a great time to reevaluate when your irrigation is running and for how long. Irrigation controllers are often set to run too frequently or too long, which can waste water, promote diseases, and wash away fertilizer. Remember to adhere to any water restrictions for your area.
Learn to set your irrigation timer properly and water only when plants need it. You’ll save water and money, and you’ll help protect the environment!
