Clay loam (.2inch AWC) takes awhile to deplete. I’ve changed my soil type to silty clay (.16 AWC) and my field capacity went from .6 inches (amount to fill bucket) to .48 inches. Net net, the soil gets depleted faster, and flex will water more frequently, with slightly less duration.
Colorado heated(?) up very quickly, I’ve moved my cool season grass to 85%. I’m now about every 3 days. If July is a scorcher, might have to move up even more.
This. This is probably the best advice I have seen on flex. I’m still learning my yard with flex, I think after this season I will have it nailed. Once the summer heats up, flex needs a little more TLC if you haven’t dialed everything in properly (at least here in Colorado).
Totally agree. Not as efficient as flex, but it works well and will save water/money with weather intelligence.
