April Watering Schedule

From the City of Mesa:

Windy days and fluctuating temperatures have been the norm the last few
weeks but temperatures will increase through the month until we settle
into the 90's. April through June is typically dryer as temperatures warm
up. It is a critical time to be providing irrigation as many plants are
flushing out with new growth. Find our checklist for the month, “Prepare
Your Landscape for Summer's Sizzle” at www.mesaaz.gov/conservation.

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

Shrub watering:
Desert Adapted – once every 16 days
High Water Use – once every 8 days

Groundcover and vine watering:
Desert Adapted – once every 16 days
High Water Use – once every 8 days

Cacti and succulent watering – once every 28 days

Annuals watering – once every 4 days

Native wildflowers – once every 7 days

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