<City of Tampa Water Restrictions
a. Too short--3.5-4.0 inches finished height is recommended.
b. Dull blade--frays ends of blades, making lawn look ragged and brown.
c. Riding mowers used on small lawns, and weed eaters cutting large areas.
d. Mower heavy/Operated carelessly/Too fast--leaves ruts and tire marks where turning.
e. All of the above. (More common that I like to see).
a. Irrigation system coverage/amount not adequate for current restrictions.--adjust/modify system.
b. Irrigation system not monitored consistently.--check it weekly or at least monthly.
c. Over watering in rainy season/ winter months.--pay attention to the weather.
One or more of these preventable problems may be found on most lawns. Combinations of these factors will likely be present on a problem lawn. Corrected, they will help the lawn reach its full potential.
Mowing the lawn less frequently, as in every other week can help it survive dry weather and water restrictions. The water restrictions do not apply to reclaimed water.
If you have turned your
sprinkler clock off during the rainy season, don't forget to turn it
back on when the rain spell is over.
Please remember to test your sprinkler system monthly for proper
operation so that it will be ready when you need it.
Healthy soils grow healthy plants that can resist insects,
diseases, heat and
drought stress, frost and freeze damage, and
reduce the introduction
made chemicals into the environment.
