The roots needs to go deep to help make the grass more drought tolerant. Looking at the forecast I think you're right, no earlier than June 5 should be OK. I will have to do a couple of minutes on some flower pots and some new garden plants after the current storms move out mid-next week, but we're talking less than 5 minutes of drippers on each.

The Utah Division of Natural Resources puts out a great weekly watering recommendation. Here's the link https://slowtheflow.org/tools-and-resourc es/#guide and you can also like them on Facebook and get notified that way. Obviously some accommodation has to be made for one's exact location and soil type, but it's a very good guideline.

Another very good resource is at the Conservation Garden Park in West Jordan. They're in the process now of having their "localscape" courses that show neat ways to create really nice landscaping that minimizes water use. Worth checking into.
