Anyone involved with irrigation and watering a lawn will usually tell you that the best time of day to water your lawn is early morning. This is usually due to the fact that water will be able to penetrate deeply enough into the soil to keep your grass healthy and your lawn green. However, the best time of day to water your lawn can also depend on which county you live in.
So, answering the question of the best time to water your lawn can actually depend upon several factors: What part of the United States you live in, the current climate conditions you are experiencing, what sort of grass you are maintaining, and whether your irrigation system is working.
As Miller Landscape would tell you, a good irrigation system is vital to the health of your lawn. You can program it so that you know it is running during the best time of day to water your lawn. If the programming goes haywire, or your sprinkler system needs repair, then your lawn is not going to be receiving the best of care, and it will not be getting the water it needs at the best time of day.
If your irrigation and sprinklers seem to be in a state of constant repair, it might be time to look into the age of your system, and compare the cost of irrigation repair against the purchase of a new system.
Each year, irrigation and sprinkler systems are improved with better timing and water-saving features that deliver water at the best times and with the least amount needed, so that you are getting optimum results, both from your irrigation system and saving on your water bill.
If you have noticed a hike in your water bill, yet your lawn is not looking its best, you may want to check the lines of your irrigation system to see if any have blown a leak. Repair of the line can be pretty basic, through either a good patch job or a replacement of the single line.
If a patch of lawn where a sprinkler head is located is turning brown, chances are you need a sprinkler repair. Usually, it is the sprinkler head that is malfunctioning. If you know your sprinkler system well, you probably know the brand and can easily replace it.
If your irrigation system is not working, this will be pretty obvious, because although you are watering at the right times, everything is starting to dry out and turn brown. Look up an experienced company, such as Miller Landscaping, and have them come out and check your system. Ask for the cost of repairs to the current system versus the cost of total replacement. Once you know your options, you can then proceed with fixing your system and get back to watering during the best time of day.
