Sprinkler System Installation on Long Island
Sprinkler system maintenance and proper lawn watering is absolutely necessary if you want to maintain a green lawn in the summertime. In the summertime, your lawn should be watered in the morning every other day.
If the soil in your lawn is a well drained and sandy this means your sprinkler system needs to be operating 40 minutes/zone. If the soil in your lawn is a heavier, clay soil 20 minutes/zone might be all that is needed from your sprinkler system. You need to make sure that you don’t overwater. You should never begin to water your lawn late in the evening. When you do, the leaf surface won’t dry and you’ll increase the chances of your trees getting a disease. You should water your lawn early in the morning and as close to sunup as is possible. This will minimize leaf wetness and permit proper soil absorption. Obviously, to do all of this you will first need to have a sprinkler system installation.
Once your sprinkler system is installed, you should water your lawn in short cycles of between five to seven minutes for lawn maintenance during the middle of the day. Rather than watering the lawn, this prevents the leaves from wilting. You should also cut your lawn somewhat high. A green lawn that is cut at 3” or higher can better handle environmental stresses and needs less watering. It will also prevent the sunlight from reaching any weed seeds that may buried in the canopy of your lawn and prevent their germination which will make it easier to control the weeds.
