Irrigation Methods
  • Use drip irrigation where possible.
  • Place trees on a separate valve with soakers or bubblers to allow for deep, infrequent watering.
  • Hydrozone: group plants together that have the same water needs.
  • Install MP Rotator nozzles to improve efficiency when watering lawns.
  • Use a timer with a weather sensor to water only when needed.
  • Mulch with a 3” layer to reduce evaporation up to 70% and to control weeds.
