Give your sprinklers a holiday

Updated November 15, 2022
With the cooler weather, your landscapes might not need as much water, and when it's raining, they don't need to be watered at all. Adjust your sprinkler timer now to reduce run times, consider shutting it down entirely during the winter, or remember to turn it off when it is raining.

You can also invest in a WaterSense-labeled weather-based sprinkler timer and never have to worry about your sprinkler schedule. These controllers use current local weather and landscape conditions to adjust the watering schedule and make sure your plants get just the right amount of water.
