Watering

How much water is right for your plants? Water enough for your plants without watering too much; more problems are actually caused by over-watering than under-watering.

A rain gauge is a simple way to measure rainfall or the amount of water your sprinkler system applies.

    1. Place the rain gauge in an open area of your lawn.
    2. Check the rain gauge before watering.
    3. If it's recently rained 1/4" or more wait another day to two before watering.
