New Plant and Tree Watering Instructions

*Every irrigation system will vary on the runtime needed. It is important to check the new plants and trees daily for adjustments.

New Plants with Daytime Temperatures 89° or Below:
  • Water three days per week and make sure the irrigation is soaking the entire root zone and depth of the new plants.
  • Check the plants on the days that irrigation is not watering and make sure the soil is drying out before the next cycle runs.
  • Over watering will kill plants faster than under watering.
  • Runtimes will vary greatly depending on type of irrigation and nozzle selection. It’s important to check the plants and soil for proper runtimes.
  • After two weeks on this schedule reduce days of watering down to twice per week.
New Plants with Daytime Temperatures 90° or above:
  • Water every other day and make sure irrigation is soaking the entire root zone and depth of the new plants.
  • Check the plants on the days that irrigation is not watering and make sure the soil is drying out before the next cycle runs.
  • Over watering will kill plants faster than under watering.
  • Runtimes will vary greatly depending on type of irrigation and nozzle selection. It’s important to check the plants and soil for proper runtimes.
  • After the first week reduce days of watering to three times per week.
  • After the second week reduce watering to two days per week.
New Trees:
  • Water new trees three times per week for the first 12 months.
  • It is very important to make sure the soil dries out in between waterings.
  • Over watering can kill trees very quickly.
  • Make sure to soak the entire root ball during the watering cycle.
  • If soil is staying wet in between irrigation cycles, then adjust runtimes or days so the soil will have some dry time.
  • Runtimes will vary depending on the type of irrigation emitter.

*Water districts allow a 30 or 60 day grow-in exemption for watering outside of restrictions while your plants become established and trees that have their own irrigation are exempt at all times.
