Check the irrigation system regularly to prevent leaks, overspray, and watering the plantings just before, during, or immediately following rainy days. Even on dry days, make sure the system is not overwatering the plants, oversaturating the soil. Reprogram the irrigation system seasonally and adjust it to water in either the early morning or late evening to reduce water loss through evaporation. If the irrigation sys tem needs to be replaced, install high-efficiency bubblers, microspray, and other efficient irrigation heads. For a comprehensive assessment of the irrigation system, hire a specialist to do an irrigation audit.
