I live in Southern California (zip code 92620) and I have a very small (maybe 300 sqft), 2 zone backyard with a mixture of shrubs and gardening plants - Japanese Privet, pittosporum, citrus, tomatoes and some herbs. They get an average amount of sun, maybe 6 hours a day (there’s some shade from nearby wall, houses, etc). Standard sprinkler system.
Since I’m not an expert on gardening, I decided to keep it simple and just select the Flex monthly plan. However, Rachio comes up with quite an odd schedule: a total watering time of 54 minutes, roughly every 6 days. I’m wondering if this is a “healthy” watering schedule, and if it wouldn’t have been preferable to water less and more often?
Would love to get your thoughts / tips.
