How much water is enough?

For most Florida soils, an average of ¾ inches of water a week is sufficient to replenish the grass. You can measure this with tuna fish or other flat-bottom, wide-mouth cans. Place five to seven of these throughout the irrigation zone to be operated. Water until the depth of water in each can is ¾ inch. That's how long that zone needs to be run once a week in summer and once every two to three weeks during the dry months.
