Needing some advice on adaptive frequency and adaptive watering

    If you have selected trees as plant type, along with adaptive frequency it might lead to big pauses between irrigations. That's because trees usually have deep roots, which might not be the cases with young conifers. Usually with newly planted vegetation is better to have a fixed duration (without weather) and for trees on a every 4 days frequency. This can be a another program (with an end date) along with the program that you will use after the trees had established themselves.

    I'm not sure what's the state of your conifers now. If they look bad I'd definitely make a program for next 2 months, without adaptive weather, every 4 days and a fixed duration. I'd try to calculate the duration so I can put at around 1.5 inches of water in the soil every 4 days. Depending on your sprinkler head, divide 1.5 inch by the precipitation rate of your sprinkler to find an approximate duration.
