(UNDATED) - Watering the lawn may seem like a simple task, but experts say without the proper knowledge, you may be wasting time and money.
It's Smart Irrigation Month, and Hoosiers are encouraged to conserve water.
Anthony Swinger with the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor says while the state is not currently facing drought-related issues, consumers should always be conscious about using water efficiently.
Swinger says there is such a thing as "over watering," and most lawns typically only need to be watered once a week and should be done between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. to reduce evaporation and it will also help make sure the ground is better saturated.
He adds that those with automatic sprinkler systems should learn about
newer technologies that can make their system operate more effectively.
