IRRIGATIONTurn off all irrigation water and operate your clock manually. When you set your irrigation clock to come on during the early morning hours, remember to divide your watering time in half and then space the two intervals at least four hours apart. This allows the soil to absorb the application. Longer dryout periods encourages plants to grow deeper roots as they search for water.
