Wait to Water
CLEARWATER. - Lawns need less water during the cooler months. That's why the Public Utilities department is encouraging residents to participate in the "Skip a Week" Program. If you irrigate your lawn, you water your lawn every other month during the fall and winter seasons. According to research by the University of Florida, three-quarters of an inch of water every ten to 14 days is sufficient for a healthy, vibrant lawn.
Homeowners can determine when their grass needs water when:
Skipping a week of irrigation will help encourage grass blades to root deeper into the ground; it also will conserve drinking water supplies. Following this conservation program saves water that the public needs during the dry season.
