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.
2021 Weekly Watering Recommendations are closed for the season! Fall rains signal the end of the watering season. If you have an automated sprinkler timer, make sure it is turned off. Shut off the main water supply to your sprinkler system and drain the water out of the sprinkler pipes from your drain valves and backflow assembly. We will be back next year with new tips, tricks, and information to help keep your yards beautiful while being good stewards of local water resources!

In the spirit of waste reduction, we are no longer providing watering gauges. Over the past few years, we estimate we have distributed over 80,000 gauges in the Eugene community. If you don't have a gauge, you can easily make one from a tuna can.
