When it comes to watering your lawn, it is very important that you select the right watering method. If you have a large lawn, above ground sprinklers cover larger areas more effectively. However, be aware that this could encourage the spread of disease on roses, raspberries, beans, and other susceptible plants. In dry climates, you want to use drip irrigation around shrubs, trees, and in gardens. This provides maximum water efficiency and disease control.
You want to make sure that your irrigation lines are covered with mulch or buried just under the soils surface. It is also important that you have your sprinklers setup so that all the water falls on the lawn and not on the road, sidewalk, or any part of your home structure. When adjusting the water pressure for any irrigation system, allow the water to penetrate the soil without running off or puddling.
