If you’re a homeowner or a business with an automated irrigation system in your landscape, one of the most important things is to properly prepare your irrigation system for winter.
The University of Minnesota Extension Turfgrass Science program is proud to partner with the Metropolitan Council in providing information on water conservation to homeowners. Learn about how to maintain a healthy green lawn while reducing your irrigation practices and talk with UMN turfgrass science experts about water conservation practices for irrigating your lawn.
