PLEASE NOTE: The above watering times are based on weekly water need for areas in full sun. Decrease these times by 20% for areas that are in shade.
 
If you are just trying to keep your landscape alive this year, reducing the recommended time by 30-40% will likely be sufficient. Most lawns and landscapes can handle reduced watering times, they will just not be as lush.
