Heating Up and Staying Healthy: Irrigation Tips for Your Lawn

Now that summer is at it’s peak, it’s prudent to know that July is smart irrigation month. Proper irrigation is crucial for any yard to stay green and inviting year-round, especially during the hottest days. There are multiple ways to properly irrigate your lawn and here are a few tips to get the most out of your landscape.

Irrigation means the difference between a healthy lawn and an uninviting one during the height of summer. Let’s keep yours green.


Be Selective

The obvious tip is to focus on plants that need less water compared to others. An easy way to do this is selecting plants that are already local to the area. Anything not accustomed to the climate zone will require extra work and extra water to care for. Another option would be exploring drought tolerant turf that can survive better in low water environments.



Hydrozoning essentially means grouping plants with similar water needs together in an effort to better use your resources. In combination with using drought tolerant plants, hydrozoning can make a huge difference when it comes to water conservation.


Invest in Smart Irrigation

Installing a smart irrigation system can save up to 15-20% on water bills. A smart irrigation system relies on smart controls that actively sense conditions outside and only waters when necessary.
