three times a week,25 minutes an area and depending how many zones try to start around 5am. I have 9 zones, so I sart 3am

RE: how m uch water is enough?

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
