Wendy's Weekly Water Tip: Cycle & Soak

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Consider the Cycle and Soak method for watering your lawn.  Our soils contain a large amount of clay, making it tough for water to soak in.  The Cycle and Soak technique is an efficient method for irrigating lawns, greatly reducing runoff and water waste.  If you water your grass three times for four minutes each time, with an hour in between cycles, your lawn will actually absorb more water than if you let the sprinklers run for twelve minutes straight. Most automatic sprinkler systems can be set up for the Cycle and Soak method.
