Time for Spring Watering?

  1. Frost Dates: We wait until after the last frost date in our area–we are located in Middlesex, NJ–to avoid damage to your sprinkler system from freezing temperatures. Frost dates vary in New Jersey, so we keep a careful eye on local resources for accurate information and we pay attention to what is going on right here in Somerset, Morris, Hunterdon and the surrounding counties in Central New Jersey.
  2. Soil Temperature: Grass roots start to grow when soil temperatures consistently reach about 55°F (about 13°C). This is a good indicator that it’s time to start watering. We measure soil temperature with a soil thermometer or check local agricultural extension services for soil temperature updates.
  3. Weather Conditions: If we are experiencing a particularly dry early spring, we may need to start watering your lawn sooner to prevent stress. Conversely, if spring brings plenty of rain, delaying the start of regular watering might make more sense. It’s New Jersey weather…so who knows!
  4. Lawn Condition: Keep an eye on your lawn. If it starts to show signs of growth and green up, it’s likely needing more water, especially if the weather has been dry. If you haven’t heard from us yet…contact us! It gets really busy all at the same time but it is very important to us that you are happy and we will do whatever is in our power to get there as soon as we can.

RR Irrigation can provide advice , including the best time to start water your lawn in the spring based on your conditions and grass. We also look for ways to improve and conserve water when we come out to your home. Just ask us! The team at RR Irrigation looks forward to seeing everyone soon.
