The start of summer was one of the hottest and driest ever recorded by Denver Water, and despite the heat, customers still have been using water efficiently — which keeps more water in storage to help stretch our supply if the dry times continue.
Make each minute matter by cycling and soaking. Water when the time is right, which is easy if you remember the rules don’t allow watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Limit watering to no more than three days a week, and only when your lawn needs a drink.
To figure out how much water your lawn needs, start with these recommended watering times for September.
|Minutes to water per zone (for lawns, based on three days per week*)|
*These times are based on a sprinkler system running at an efficient level. Remember, no watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
If you only walked on your lawn to water, fertilize or mow this summer, do you really need it? Consider remodeling your yard this fall.
