Smart Irrigation Month

Smart Irrigation Month is a reminder to take a moment to check that your irrigation system is running efficiently.  Sprinkler heads should have head-to-head coverage and all be the same size and style in each respective zone. Broken, misaligned and obstructed heads are the biggest water waster and a primary reason for poor plant health. If you haven't already, consider upgrading to rotary nozzles that apply water at a slower, better absorbing rate. Check out CRconserve.com for more tips on how to maintain an efficient and water-wise irrigation system. Castle Rock Water also has rebates for those new rotary nozzles, and for taking out some of that high-maintenance, high-irrigation lawn!

Did you know?

  • Lawns make up almost 2 percent of the entire surface of the U.S., making it the single most irrigated crop in the nation!
  • The average homeowner spends approximately 4 hours per week caring for their lawn. That means between 150 and 208 hours per year.
  • 80 million pounds of pesticides and 70 million pounds of chemical fertilizer are applied to our lawns in the United States each year.
  • A grass’s weight is 75% to 80% water, and most of that is in its roots.
  • There are over 10,000 different types of grass. Some variations of grass include: turf grass, wheat, rice, corn, sugarcane and bamboo--and palm trees!

And to ponder while you are gardening:
What did the lawn say to the sprinkler? 

Stop spraying water everywhere, you’re really starting to irrigate me!
