1. Water Properly

A Kamloops lawn doesn't need to be watered every other day. It only requires about 2.5 cm (1") per week to keep it green (depending on weather and soil conditions). An empty tuna can is approximately 2.5 cm deep. Place several cans at different distances from your sprinkler. Time how long it takes to collect an average of 2.5 cm of water. Water this length of time once per week in the summer. Reduce this time by half for spring and fall-time.
