Summer is hot and dry, and it is the perfect time to check your irrigation. Watering your plants smartly could help your yard grow healthier with much less water usage.

First, it is important to minimize the water evaporation during irrigation. Watering plants in the daytime from 11am to 7pm is prohibited from May 1 until October 1. The best watering time is during the midnight to sunrise hours. Also, avoid watering your landscape when it is rainy or windy outside.

Mulch will help protect your soil from water evaporation and ensure the water lasts longer, and it is actually used by your plants. Mulch creates shade and blocks the heat from the air. Bark mulch also degrades over time to create organic matters that give plants needed nutrients.

Programming you irrigation system for the different uses will save your water and money. Normally, you can set your clock into three different programs: sprinkler irrigation for lawns, drip systems for high-water use plants and drip systems for water-efficient use plants. Check your plants and lawn status - if you find plants that are stressed or burned around the leaves, you might need to change your watering pattern. Check the soil to make sure it is not over-watered, because many desert plants donít like excessive water and the symptoms can look the same. The best way is set your clock so it waters, rests, and then repeat the water-rest pattern.

Check and test your irrigation system monthly. Look for sprinklers or emitters that are not working, or drip lines that are leaking. If you have an old irrigation clock, replace it with a smart controller or add a rain sensor. With proper maintenance, an irrigation system will help keep your yard green and save you lots of money and time.
