May’s Watering Schedule

A reminder from the City of Mesa:

Welcome to summer. While temperatures have been up and down and blown around, May through October is considered our summer season. Temperatures will continue to rise, and Bermuda grass and many landscape plants will look a little stressed as they transition into the warmer season. These recommendations are for plants that are established in the landscape (in the ground about 2 years).

Lawn watering:
    Summer grass (Bermuda) – once every 4-5 days
    Overseeded cool season grass (rye) – once every 3 days
If trees and shrubs are on the same valve:
    Desert Adapted – once every 17 days
    High Water Use – once every 8 days
Tree watering:
    Desert Adapted – once every 20 days
    High Water Use – once every 10 days
Shrub watering:
    Desert Adapted – once every 14 days
    High Water Use – once every 6 days
Groundcover and vine watering:
    Desert Adapted – once every 14 days
    High Water Use – once every 6 days
Cacti and succulent watering – once every 24 days
Annuals watering – once every 3-4 days


Note: These recommendations are a general guideline only and may need to be modified for your specific site conditions.
