I cannot believe Summer 2012 is over and we have SURVIVED the water restrictions! Please remember to continue to apply your 1.5 to 2 inches of water a week. Cycle watering (setting sprinklers to run back to back) is the best method for effective watering. Think about getting a 5 minute rain vs. a 30- 45 minute steady rain (I know those are hard to come by around here). The root system is able to soak up the water. Now you are able to get your 1.5 – 2 inches 2 days a week, instead of once a week.
