3 Days/Week Irrigation is Burbank's "New Normal"
3 Days/Week is Sufficient to Sustain a Healthy Landscape
During the height of the drought, just two days per week irrigation was allowed during warmer months and we know that some lawns suffered. Landscape professionals say that three days per week watering is sufficient to sustain a healthy landscape. In fact, too much irrigation is actually unhealthy for your lawn, limiting its ability to grow deep roots. If you find that extra watering is occasionally needed, you can always water by hand.
