I’m excited about getting a Rachio 3 to replace my 15 year old Rainbird controller. Before it arrives I’m reading all I can and laying out how to categorize each of my 15 zones. With that done, I’m at at stopping point when it comes to schedules.
I’m assuming flex daily and flex monthly, but not sure which zones to put into which schedule. I have 5 zones of cool grass in clay with lots of sun, 7 zones of low ground cover (shrub?) in clay loam with lots of shade, and 3 of cool grass in shade.
I’m looking for ideas on the initial schedule setup, knowing that it will have to be tweaked later. Also, I’ve read in the forum that people adjust the advanced settings to change zone watering frequency/intervals. Do people tweak the zone advanced settings very much? That would seem to be a fairly involved process.
