Remedy the water woes
Reticulating your lawn is the best long-term solution for a healthy, green lawn. Current watering restrictions allow up to a 10mm standard watering on your watering days.
If your lawn is reticulated, but still brown and patchy, this is what may be affecting it:
1. Sprinkler run times
Every sprinkler has different run times to apply that lovely 10mm drink for Perth lawns.
This means some slow application sprinklers, still within the Water Corporation regulations, can run up to 60 minutes at a time.
So, if you’re only running your Perth reticulation for 10-15 minutes and you have a rotary, gear drive or dripline sprinkler system, it just isn’t enough for the hot Perth summer.
2. Incorrect sprinkler layout
Sprinklers don’t cover their own bases, so your sprinkler system should ideally be set for ‘head-to-head’ coverage. This entails each sprinkler throwing all the way to the base of opposite and adjacent sprinklers, and vice versa.
3. Grass blocking sprinklers
Letting the blades of your grass grow too long will eventually block the sprinkler spray.
This will leave you with green patches around your sprinklers, and dead, brown patches everywhere else. The solution? Install longer pop up sprinklers, and of course, mow your grass more.
