July is here, and with it comes the scorching heat of summer. But did you know that July is also Smart Irrigation Month? This month is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of efficient water use and promoting smart irrigation practices.
As Lubbock’s trusted irrigation professionals, Watermaster is here to provide valuable tips and resources to ensure your lawn remains lush and green without wasting water.
1. Upgrade to a Smart Irrigation System
Modern technology has given us smart irrigation systems that adjust watering schedules based on weather conditions and soil moisture levels. These systems can significantly reduce water waste, ensuring that your plants get just the right amount of water they need.
Resource: Check out our Smart Irrigation Systems Guide to understand the benefits and features of the latest models.
2. Water at the Right Time
Watering during the cooler parts of the day, like early morning or late evening, reduces evaporation. This ensures that more water reaches your plants’ roots and less is wasted.
Resource: Our Best Watering Practices Guide offers a detailed breakdown of the optimal times and frequencies for watering in Lubbock.
3. Regular Maintenance Checks
A leak or a broken sprinkler head can waste significant water. Regularly inspect your irrigation system for any signs of damage or malfunction.
Resource: Schedule a maintenance check with Watermaster. Our team of experts will ensure your system is running efficiently.
4. Use Drip Irrigation for High-Efficiency
Drip irrigation delivers water directly to plant roots, reducing evaporation and runoff. It’s especially effective for non-turf areas like flowerbeds and vegetable gardens.
Resource: Learn more about the benefits of drip irrigation in our Drip Irrigation 101 Guide.
5. Adjust Sprinkler Heads
Ensure that your sprinklers are aimed correctly to water your lawn, not the sidewalk or driveway. Misaligned sprinkler heads can lead to significant water waste.

Share the importance of smart irrigation with your friends, family, and community. The more people practice efficient watering, the more we can conserve our precious water resources.
