Well pump question

I've lived in my house for 12 years and never watered my lawn due to the well. Yesterday was the first time I watered the grass seed / dry weather..and I ran out of water.

Question - I always assumed I should not try to water my lawn given I have a well but, is this assumption right or could there be something wrong with my water supply?

Don't know the well pump capacity, new (3 months old) 85 gal WellXTrol (pro) water storage tank. Simple old fashion back and forth lawn sprinkler.

Thanks the the info...sounds like I was right to begin with...if you have a well mother nature needs to take care of the lawn.

I picked up a sprinkler head that covers about a 20' x 30' area. I put a small tray in the yard and let the water run until the tray (+/- 1") was full. Not sure exact time but it could have been 30 to 60 min.
