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.
Water the 1st interval at 1:00 A.M., and the 2nd interval at 5:00 A.M. This will help keep runoff to a minimum, giving the soil time to drink the water.
During the summer/early fall this is especially important because more saturation means less watering. If your area is having day temperatures of 92 degrees and
above, then you will want to stay with the August Irrigation Schedule
