Instead of limiting irrigation to 1 or 2 days a week with no time limit, wouldn’t it be better to have time limits and spread it out to multiple days a week?

We recommend watering for 5-7 minutes, 2-3 times per assigned day, to maximize the benefit of irrigation. This is more effective than watering for longer periods of time, which may lead to runoff and inefficient irrigation.
