We offer weekly watering recommendations to give your yard just the right amount to drink.
If you choose to water your lawn, follow Oregon State University Extension Service guidelines to maintain a healthy lawn in western Oregon. Watering is only one step for keeping your grass green throughout the summer.

Watering recommendations for the week of July 14 - 20, 2018:
Water your lawn and flowers: 1.48 inches
Tip of the week: When the sun goes down, let your sprinklers pop up. By watering after sunset and completing landscape watering before sunrise, as parks and campuses do, you will avoid losing moisture to evaporation. The best time to water is during the night between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m.
