Cool season grasses go dormant when it gets hot. Lots of water is all you can do.

I don't understand the problem with the sprinklers. Turn one off, turn the other one on. Why do you have to unplug? Maybe you need another hose or a Y-adapter?

I have a simple shutoff valve on the end of my house. I can switch from my power washer to my sweeper nozzle to my sprinkler with a quick quarter turn. I never have to run back to the house and turn that spigot handle 100 times. I recommend it.

Ok, here is my setup for my front lawn.

I have 2 spike sprinklers on each corner in the front.

I run 2 separate hoses to them and have them on a timer. my water pressure is only good enough for 1 sprinkler at a time so I have them on seperate channels and one runs for its specified time then after about a minute of it being off the other one starts. no interaction needed from you once you set it up. This timer gives you 2 automatic valves and a third manual valve that you can use without having to unhook everything.
