Change the battery in your automatic irrigation clock and then set the time back an hour. Split your watering times into 2 intervals. Water the 1st interval at
1:00 A.M., and the 2nd interval at 5:00 A.M. This will help keep runoff to a minimum, giving the soil more time to drink the water. During fall this is especially
important because more saturation means less watering. Remember to divide your watering time in half and then space the two intervals at least four hours apart. This
allows the soil to absorb the water.
If you feel your yard has gotten a good soaking from the rain,
turn your irrigation clock off - remember ...
you can always turn it back on.
