In Florida, hurricane season runs from the beginning of June to the end of November. There are still things you can do around your property to protect your lawn so it can make it through this period intact.

When there is a hurricane on the way, it is always a good idea to turn off your sprinkler system. While some models turn themselves off automatically during inclement weather, not all sprinkler systems have this feature. It is best to do it manually, just to be safe. Don’t forget to turn it back on when the weather clears!

Hurricanes are known for bringing heavy rainfall, so giving your lawn additional water can do more harm than good. Even after the rains have stopped, the soil under your lawn will likely still be saturated for a while. Wait until it is mostly dry once again before returning to your regular watering schedule.
