|Lawns need about an inch of water per week. While many homeowners like to water 15 minutes a day, your turf will benefit from a good soaking applied less often. Apply 1/2 to 1 inch of water once or twice a week. A coffee can makes a good rain gauge to test out how long your sprinklers will need to be run to apply an inch. Run the system (or the sprinkler) for 15 minutes then check to see how much water has collected in the can. You can adjust the amount of time you run the sprinklers depending upon how much water has collected in the can. Good luck with your lawn.
