Winter watering schedule changes

System - Saturday, November 22, 2014
This is a simple reminder to many of our great residents to change their watering clocks for their yards, plus some great tips from our LV Water District.

Sprinkler Watering Tips

*Aerate your lawn. Aeration pulls tiny plugs from the soil, allowing water to be better absorbed.

*Bermuda goes dormant in the winter so it doesn't need much water. Irrigate bermuda grass just once per month November through March.

*Avoid afternoon winds and reduce the risk of icing by watering in the midmorning.
*If frost or a freeze damages a plant, leave it alone until warmer weather arrives and new growth appears. Pruning or transplanting a damaged plant in the winter can hurt or even kill it.
*Turn on sprinklers for a minute after you mow and scan for broken or misaligned sprinkler heads and broken pipes.

Drip Watering Tips

During winter, run your drip irrigation system in a single cycle of 30 to 90 minutes, one day a week. The length of watering should be determined by the emitter flow rate, soil type and weather conditions. See our drip watering tips for details.


Daylight Saving Time Ends

Don't forget to reset your irrigation clock when daylight saving time ends on the first Sunday in November at 2 a.m. When you're changing your indoor clocks, make sure you update the time on your irrigation clock.
