For the week of July 17th
Based on current weather conditions, turf grass needs just
and three quarters inches
of water this week. Additionally, the weather forecast is
calling for temperatures to rise over the next week, so
monitor your lawn and adjust your watering accordingly.
Different sprinklers apply water at different rates, but as
an approximate guideline, you would need to run standard
spray sprinklers a total of about 70 minutes
for the week. Rotors apply water more slowly, so they need
to run around 169 minutes over the course
of the week to apply the same amount of water. If you have
multi-stream rotators, you need to run those for 264
minutes for the week.
To determine how long to run sprinklers each watering day,
divide the total minutes we’ve given by the number of days
you will be watering this week. For example, if you water
4 days per week, you would run spray
sprinklers for 18 minutes each watering day
to apply the needed amount of water. Typical rotors would
need to run 42 minutes on each watering day
and multi-stream rotators for 66 minutes
each watering day.
Additionally, instead of applying all the water in one
cycle, break up the watering into three shorter
cycles separated by an hour or so.
That would mean running spray sprinklers 6 minutes
each cycle, rotor sprinklers for 14 minutes
and multi-stream rotators 22 minutes. This
will help the water penetrate deeper into the soil.
