Most lawn experts agree that many residents over-water their lawns and offer the following advice: established lawns only need 1 inch of water per week; water in the early morning or evening when evaporation rates are lowest; do not water during rain; and avoid over watering, which actually creates a weak grass plant that cannot tolerate drought or pests.
Residents are reminded that if they
have lawn irrigation systems that functioning backflow preventers MUST be
installed on the system to prevent backflow contamination.
