Dead, crunchy brown grass, wilting, drooping flowers and yellowing dreary leaves on the trees, and no, this is not in reference to forest flora in the middle of the Fall! Rather, this is describing what a lawn can look like if not watered often during the warmer months. Yes, most irrigation system providers recognize that going outside each evening to water your lawn may not be feasible, but that does not mean that you cannot have a great looking lawn. Instead of letting your lawn look run down, you can keep your lawn looking fresh and inviting by having a sprinkler system installed.

Adjust the watering times or number of minutes as well as the frequency of watering based on weather conditions. Change your settings based on the seasons as well.
Be observant; take time at least once a month (ideally once a week) to check your system for leaks, broken sprinkler heads and other problems that could result in excess water usage.
Only water your lawn after the sun has gone down as this will reduce rapid evaporation.
Shaded areas typically use 30 percent less water, so be sure the sprinkler system has a lower output in these areas in your yard. You may also want to consider using drip irrigation for areas with trees or shrubs.
Each spring and fall, take the time to aerate your yard as not only does this loosen the soil but it helps reduce runoff as well. Then, after aerating, spread a layer of composted mulch, which will help keep the soil loose and hold water near the roots.
