Turn Off Sprinklers During Winter

Resident Reminder: Turn off Your Sprinklers During the Winter

On Thursday, January 8, the morning temperature was 18 degrees; freezing is 32 degrees. Several homes on Hearst Castle had sheets of ice on their sidewalks and the adjacent road, because their sprinklers were running during the night. You generally don’t need to water during the winter because the grass is dormant. If you feel you must cycle your sprinklers, make sure your system has a freeze guard. Thanks!

Here is one of the Hearst Castle sidewalks.
