How much to water? About 3/4 of an inch. Since irrigation systems are not perfectly tuned to provide 3/4 inch to every corner of the lawn, one would normally water more than this amount. How much depends on how bad is the irrigation system. The simplest way to find out is to place more-or-less straight-sided containers, such as coffee cans or frozen drink concentrate cans, etc., preferably 10 or 20 per lawn, and run the sprinklers for a timed test, say, one hour. If the sprinklers put out 3 inches in one hour, then you can figure on watering for 15 minutes to provide the “average” turf needs, until the next time it wilts.
