Timer and Watering Schedules

Coconut Contracting tries, whenever possible, to follow the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association (AMWUA) landscape watering guidelines. The schedule provided is NOT a definitive plan for every yard. Many factors influence how one property uses water relative to another. It’s a process of fine-tuning and subtle adjustments, depending on the time of year. As you make changes, if you begin to notice standing water, you should decrease the amount of time sprinklers are on. Conversely, if the changes lead to a dry lawn, change the schedule to increase the time.
