Soil Type

Which calculations does soil type impact? I live in Central NJ, and my soil is naturally clay if you dig down. In certain areas the top six inches is all clay. In other areas, I’ve added an inch or two of top soil when planting seed. I’m trying to decide whether to set my soil to “Clay” or “Silty-Clay.”

Does the soil type only impact the length of smart cycling? Or is it used to determine evaporation, etc in the flex scheduling?

It is used in much more than smart soak times but also how much water the soil can hold total and how quickly it will evaporate.


To answer you question soil type is impactful on smart cycling and flex/as needed scheduling. Here are some links that can help with any additional questions you might have.
