How long to water

Asked June 22, 2016, 10:02 PM EDT

First year gardener, so far so good. I just purchased an oscillating sprinkler to water my garden. How long should I run it to get about 1 inch of water?
Should I give 1 inch of water in one session or would it be more beneficial to water less but more often?
Thanks

Hello,
Watering once or at the most twice a week is best and morning is always the best time to water if possible. You will have to measure how long it takes to get an inch using a rain gage, bucket, or can.

Excellent advice. Thank you very much.
