Look for leaks outside. It’s a good idea to check your landscaping irrigation system regularly for leaks. If you’re noticing soggy areas in your lawn (especially if you haven’t watered lately), you probably have a leak. Make sure to inspect sprinkler heads, nozzles, and drip lines for breaks and tears, as well as the nozzle on your hose and the connection to your spigot.
Upgrade your sprinkler heads. Keep your lawn in shape without overwatering by switching to high-efficiency rotating sprinkler heads. Watering less often but for a longer period of time promotes deep root growth. Aerating your lawn periodically helps water reach the roots and reduces runoff.
