As our season transitions into the cooler temperatures of fall, be sure to adjust your irrigation controller. JC Clean Up recommends decreasing the amount of water used as follows:
1. Reduce your total run time by a third.
2. Increase your start time.
For example, if you were starting your irrigation at 5:00 AM, adjust the start time to 8:00 AM and adjust your end time so that the total run time is 1/3 less than what it was in the summer. This way your landscape will use less water and you’ll minimize the potential for early morning freeze issues.
Stay tuned for November’s hot tip!
