We (meaning my husband) installed Rachio a few months ago when CA had a ton of rain. We set up a flex schedule, and everything was moving along nicely. Now, daily highs are in the 80’s, and I’m having doubts.
When the zones were set up, we did check our soil type (sandy loam) but our yard is large and on a steep slope; we have issues with runoff. But we also get so much sun that our hills and ground cover are crispy. I’ve since done some reading on the community page, and change variable such as riot depth, and depletion, but with a new flex schedule setup Rachio wants to water everything heavily, and then basically leave it for a week. Which means I’ll need to manually water from the get go, defeating the purpose of the flex schedules. Should I give up now, move to a fixed schedule and then work on a flex schedule come fall?
