Been trying to nail down my settings for my flex daily setup. I live in Port Jefferson Station, NY (Long Island) and as per the Web Soil Survey, I have set my soil type as Sandy Loam and the AWC as 0.08.
My house is new construction and the contractor had stripped the top soil layer before building and then spread it back over again. Additionally, the landscaper brought it another 2-3 inches of screened topsoil.
So my question is… should i set my soil type to Topsoil and my AWC to something like .12 or should I leave it as is. It seems like the lower AWC and the sandy loam setting wants to water a little less but more frequenty - kind of negating the “long and infrequent” advice for root growth.
