June Landscape Water Reminder

From the City of Mesa:

We’ve enjoyed some mild temperatures so far for June but summer’s sizzle will be here soon. Though average temperatures are slightly lower in June than July, water demand by plants can be at its highest this month due to the low humidity levels.
These recommendations are for plants that are established in the landscape (in the ground about 2 years).

Lawn watering:
Summer grass (Bermuda) - once every 3 days
Overseeded cool season grass (rye) – grass dies out If trees and shrubs are on the same valve:
Desert Adapted - once every 14 days
High Water Use - once every 7 days

Tree watering:
Desert Adapted - once every 16 days
High Water Use - once every 8 days

Shrub watering:
Desert Adapted - once every 12 days
High Water Use - once every 5 days

Groundcover and vine watering:
Desert Adapted - once every 12 days
High Water Use - once every 4 days

Cacti and succulent watering - once every 21 days Annual & vegetable watering - once every 2-3 days

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