Most plants including grass will grow well with one inch of rain per week. So first water when you need it. lawns will grow deeper roots with a more thorough watering. 3 times per week seems too much. watering right before day break is the best. if this is your first house and you have never paid a water and sewer bill get ready.

Read all you can. This site has great free info. All the state cooperatives do. congratulations on new digs
