I installed my Rachio 3 a month ago and did the wizard to help set up the schedule for my sprinklers. I used to water the zone 3 to 4 times a week for an hour before sunrise and that seemed to be what my lawn needed to stay green.
With Rachio in control (flex daily), it seems to only want to water for an hour and a half once a week. My grass doesn’t seem to like that; It’s turned quite yellow.
I’m wondering if installing a water meter would help so that the Rachio knows exactly when the lawn needs to be watered, and how much.
I’m also considering doing the Rachio Thrive plan. Would that bring my dying lawn back, or is that something that needs to be started in the Spring?
Curious on the community’s thoughts on these topics.
