How often should I be watering?

On an established landscape, once or twice a week thoroughly should be enough. ‘Enough’ means an application of one inch of water during the growing season and during dry periods. Irrigating on every occasion allowed on an odd-even system may lead to problems associated with over-watering. All sprinkling systems should have both rain and freeze proof sensors and be designed to segregate turf from bed areas for the simple reason that grass has a greater need for moisture than do trees and shrubs.
