- Irrigation of new and replanted plant, seed, or turf may be done at any time of day for 30 days after installation;
- Drip irrigation or irrigation using soaker hoses may be done at any time of day; and
- Handwatering with a hose with automatic cutoff or handheld container may be done at any time of day.
