Want your lawn to look great? One of the best ways that you can do this is by using sprinklers to water it. But you want to make sure that you are using your lawn sprinklers the right way. Below are some tips that you can use to help your lawn sprinklers take good care of your lawn.

Get Some Good Coverage from Your Lawn Sprinklers

In order to avoid having dry spots, you should position your sprinkler heads so they are overlapping slightly in the areas they cover. Walk on your lawn after you have watered it and then adjust the sprinklers if you’re noticing spots that are missed.

Do Some Maintenance on Your Lawn Sprinklers

It’s important that you watch your sprinklers while they’re on and look for leaking or clogged heads. Use some narrow wire for unclogging the heads that are clogged. Replace or repair the valves if you have leaking sprinklers or the valve boxes have become waterlogged. Look for any heads that you see spraying your pavement. If you notice a fine fog or mist during the watering, you should lower your pressure.

Be Flexible with Using Your Sprinklers            

Reset the schedule for watering as you need to due to changes in weather. if you are living in an area that is drought-prone, check to see if there are any restrictions on watering the lawn. You may only be able to water during specific times or on specific days.

Only Water as Needed

Check the weather and see when there is rain forecast. You can also get something that will monitor the weather data, your location, and the type of plant for optimizing and customizing your watering schedule. This way your sprinklers will run only when needed.
