Hi there. I just set up my new Rachio (2nd generation) and it was a breeze! I’m in Sunnyvale, CA (SF Bay Area). I have relatively new landscaping (2 months) that is shrubs and trees covered with bark on drip irrigation. No grass. Since the plants are new, the trees are young and, I think, the plants like camellias are not yet established with their root system.
I’m trying to figure out whether a fixed or flexible schedule is best for the time being. I created some schedules to get a feel for the app and noticed that a flexible schedule would water for 14 hours every 12 days or so, which seems like a lot of water at a time! Or if I do fixed on odd days, it would water about an hour a day.
What is recommended for new landscaping with plants that are not established? I’m new to gardening in general, so this is partly a Rachio question but also partly general gardening best practice.
