Just got my unit in yesterday and everything is connected and setup. I chose “Flex Monthly” as it was what showed up as “recommended.” I pretty much set everything up as “Recommended” because I want to give the ML a chance to kick butt. The resulting schedule is quite interesting with very sporadic total watering. It is supposed to rain next week, so the long duration between the next watering makes sense.
My question is that does this schedule seem normal? This watering period seems VERY long and infrequent (maybe that’s the ML in action?). What do I do if my grass seems to do poorly with this schedule? Also, it it somewhat weird that the Street Side Grass (smaller chunk and stationary heads vs rotary heads) is such a short duration? Everything is set on soak cycle (as suggested).
Also, we bought the house in February and the “South Side Lawn” seems like it has been underwater in the past. The house is newer (under two years) and the sod still shows the “lines” in it. The default in the settings shows 9" roots but I doubt they are that well established. Should I mess with some of those settings for that zone?
