Correct Spinkler Use

Correct Spinkler Use

I thought sprinklers were pretty self-explanatory, but I was wrong. UofI Extension gives a nice breakdown of spinkler tips for your garden/lawn.

 

Take away:

-sprinklers do not distribute evenly, consider overlapping

-have a measuring cup or so to know how much water you’re delivering

-gardens usually need about 1 inch per week of water; UNLESS the temperature is over 90F (then it’s two!)
