Time to Water? Not So Fast.
Spring may have sprung a little early, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to pull out the hoses and sprinklers just yet.
This year, plentiful winter rains have given lawns a healthy head start. As a result, most won’t need to be watered regularly until at least April — even later if the wet weather continues.
That’s good news for your grass and your pocketbook. Since SAWS water rates are tiered, the more you use the more it costs per gallon. That could cause a big jump in your bill if you water too much or too early. So keep that in mind when you set your sprinkler system.
