How to Calibrate Your Irrigation System
During the hottest months of the growing season (June, July, August) in Tidewater your lawn and plants will benefit from at least 1 inch applied in the form of rainwater, irrigation water or both. [reference: Pub. 426-322 Virginia Cooperative Ext.] Immediate soaking and often daily watering for the first week or two after your new landscape has been installed is a necessity to lessen the stress of transplant and/or aid in germination. For this reason our technician has set up run times for the different stations (zones) based on the type of sprinklers or drip installed in that zone to get you started and set the schedule for more frequent watering.
