April Landscape Watering Schedule

From the City of Mesa:

It's warm, it's cool, it's raining, it's dry - welcome to spring in the desert! Temperatures will continue to increase through the month. Find out how to prepare your landscape and irrigation for our summer sizzle at http://tinyurl.com/3leporg.

These recommendations are for plants that are established in the landscape (in the ground about 2 years).

Lawn watering:

Summer grass (Bermuda) - once every 7 days
Overseeded cool season grass (rye) - once every 4 days

If trees and shrubs are on the same valve:
Desert Adapted – once every 20 days
High Water Use – once every 10 days

Tree watering:
Desert Adapted – once every 24 days
High Water Use – once every 12 days
