How Often Should You Water Your Lawn?

Keeping your lawn healthy and lush in the intense Dallas heat can be a challenge, but with the right watering schedule, it's more than possible. The average lawn requires at least one to one-and-a-half inches of water per week to thrive. To achieve this, we recommend watering deeply two to three times a week rather than shallow, daily watering. This approach encourages deeper root growth, making your lawn more resistant to drought and heat.

Remember that every lawn is unique and may have specific watering needs based on the type of grass, soil condition, and exposure to sun and shade. If you're unsure about the best watering practices for your lawn, our team of trained professionals is always ready to provide guidance and support. Trust J Bell Services to help you maintain a beautiful, healthy lawn throughout the year!

Types of Irrigation Systems

  • Sprinkler Systems: These are the most common type of irrigation systems for lawns and gardens. They mimic rainfall by spraying water into the air, which then falls onto the ground. They can be customized to cover large or small areas and can be set up to run on a timer.
  • Drip Irrigation Systems: These systems deliver water directly to the root zone of plants via a network of tubes, pipes, and emitters. Drip irrigation is highly efficient as it reduces water waste through evaporation or runoff. It's ideal for flower beds, vegetable gardens, or any dense plantings.
  • Soaker Hoses: A soaker hose is a porous hose that's laid along the ground in the area that needs watering. When the water is turned on, it seeps out of the hose and goes directly into the soil. Soaker hoses are good for watering individual plants or small gardens.
  • Rotor Systems: Rotor systems, or rotating sprinkler systems, are designed to cover large areas. They use rotors to spray streams of water in a circular motion, making them a good choice for large lawns or commercial properties.
  • Surface Irrigation: This method involves flooding your field or garden with a large amount of water. It's one of the oldest methods of irrigation and is best suited for flat areas with heavier soils that absorb water slowly.
  • Subsurface Irrigation: Also known as subsurface drip irrigation (SDI), this system places drip lines or drip tape below the soil surface. This method is highly efficient, as it delivers water directly to the root zone, reducing evaporation and runoff.

Should You Keep Your Irrigation System Running All Year Long?

It's generally not recommended to keep an irrigation system running all year long, as different seasons and weather conditions require different watering schedules.

During the warmer months, your lawn and plants have higher water needs due to increased evaporation and growth rates, so regular watering with your irrigation system is crucial. However, as temperatures drop in the fall and winter, plant growth slows down, and less water is required. Overwatering during this time can lead to waterlogged soil and root damage. That’s why it’s important to consult with a professional to fine-tune your watering schedule as the seasons change.

In areas where temperatures fall below freezing, it's also important to winterize your irrigation system to prevent damage. This typically involves draining or blowing out the water from the system to prevent pipes from freezing and bursting. However, maintenance of your irrigation system should be done all year round. Regular checks for leaks, broken sprinkler heads, and correct water coverage can ensure your system is ready to go when you need it.

That said, every landscape is unique and may have specific watering needs based on factors like the types of plants, local climate, and soil conditions. Always consider these factors and adjust your watering schedule accordingly. 

If you have questions about when or how much to water your lawn, call J Bell Services at (214) 480-4869 for answers – we know all there is to know about keeping landscaping irrigated in the DFW area!

Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions? We are here to help. Still have questions or can't find the answer you need? Give us a call at 214-480-4869 today!

  • How many zones do you think I need?

    We would need to see your yard first to make this determination. There are a variety of factors that play into how many zones you will need to ensure there is optimum coverage.

  • How do you locate a valve?

    We use a tool called a Valve Locator. Valve locators find lost valves by tracing the wires from the controller to the lawn irrigation system valve location.

  • How do you locate a leak?

    To find a leak, the technician is going to try and isolate the area by which zone he thinks it may be in. From there, he will start at the valve and then continue to dig up the line until it is found.

  • Are you insured?

    Yes, we are!

  • What kind of products do you use?

    We only use commercial-grade products for all our installations and repairs. Rainbird and Hunter are the main brands we use, but we can work on any brand of system.

  • How often should I water my yard?

    This can vary on several factors. Typically, in summer months, we would recommend 3 – 4 times per week in 15-minute intervals. Your technician will be able to review this onsite with you as well in case there are any specifics your yard may need.

  • Can I buy the parts and you put them on?

    Unfortunately, not. The materials we use are all commercial grade and are better quality than what is sold at Home Depot and online. For us to do the work, we would have to supply the parts to ensure the quality and be able to warranty them.

  • What do you think the problem could be?

    Unfortunately, it could be a variety of things. We would not be able to tell you for certain until we are onsite.

  • Do you know roughly how much this will be?

    Unfortunately, I do not. Repairs vary in price so much because there are so many different components involved. Your technician will be able to share his best estimate with you once onsite.

  • Can I pay you to locate a valve only?

    You can, we have a two-hour minimum for this service, plus a $45 locator fee.

  • Do you work on older systems?

    Yes! Our technicians are trained to work on all types of systems; old, new, copper and PVC.

  • Does anyone need to be home?

    We do prefer our clients to be home so we can review any potential issues found, but if you are unable to be there, we can accommodate as long as you are available by phone in case we need to speak with you.

  • Do you charge trip fees?
    We charge an hourly rate of $120, plus the cost of parts. The estimate the technicians provide will be based on this number. If you choose to move forward with the repair, you will only have to pay what the estimate is. If you choose to hold off on the repairs, we will need to charge for the troubleshooting time, which is $120 per hour. Typically, troubleshooting can be completed within 30 – 45 minutes.
  • Do you do free estimates?

    We do not provide free estimates. If an estimate is all that is needed, we can have a technician stop by to troubleshoot and give you an estimate for a trip fee of $120.00.

  • What type of warranty do you provide?
    Refer to the Warranty script. In general, we provide a 90-day or 1-year warranty on all sprinkler repairs.
  • Are you licensed?

    Yes, we are licensed by the TCEQ , the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
