Just checking, but how many of you have rescheduled or even turned off your sprinkler timers in the past couple of days? In case you hadn’t noticed it cooled way off and some funny liquid stuff fell from the skies,can’t remember what they call it. This is the time of year most people can really cut back on watering and don’t, could save money and don’t, and could have better looking plants and don’t. It is very hard to cut back on watering in the summer, in fact a lot of people try and save on water then and flat just throw it out the window this time of year. After a couple of nice rains in a 4 day span you should be able to turn off your system completely for a while. Just remember to turn it back on if it warms up and dries out, which it always does here!! Need help on adjusting your watering?
