Using Rain to Conserve Water

Keep your irrigation controller off for as long as reasonable after the rain. Let Nature do its thing. The recent rains have watered our landscapes deeply. The roots are still growing this time of year and we want to encourage them to grow deep.   Over-watering encourages the roots to grow to the surface. As the ground starts to dry out the roots will be encouraged to grow downward looking for moisture.
