Watering & Irrigation Tips

Majority of Easton Park’s turf grass is Bermuda and Zoysia. These are heat tolerant grasses that do not need too much watering.

During the Winter, turn off your automatic irrigation. Once the soil reaches 55 degrees Fahernheit, it will start to go dormant. Additionally, this coincides with Wastewater Averaging Period, allowing you to set your waste water costs for the coming year.
