UPDATED: 9/19/17: :

At this time, we suggest to keep your sprinkler system zone times at an average level for this time of the season. Those suggested times are stated below. At the time of this update on Tuesday, Sept 19th - we have forecasted possible T-storms coming in during the early morning hours of Wednesday, Sept 20th. And then, after that, because of the 2 hurricanes in the Atlantic, we have a blocking pattern set up for this weekend and into early next week which will lead to heavy rainfall. At the moment, it appears the forecasted massive rain amounts will stay west of the Twin Cities, but it is close enough to watch carefully. If we do get hit by a lot of this rain over the weekend, simply turn your sprinkler system off and wait for our next update next week.

CN'R Irrigation - Sprinkler Settings

We suggest that you water 2-3x per day for short periods of time. Maybe 5 to 10 minutes max. You do not want to water enough where the seed can move from running water. Seed needs to sit in place in a moist area to germinate.

We suggest you water one-time per day. If it is a shady area, then you should NOT have sodded that area as shade seed is the appropriate choice (there is no such thing as shade sod). If it is an area that is sun and shade, depending on the current weather conditions of course - watering the sod for about 25-35 minutes per day should be sufficient. If it is a very sunny area, then we suggest about 35-45 minutes per day. These suggested watering times should be used only until new sod has “taken” (or rooted).
