The simplest thing in the world... let the surface of the soil dry out between irrigation events, but when you do water be sure that it gets deep enough to provide moisture below the root zone(generally 6" is adequate)...

You actually looked at the roots and the soil... wow!!!
Most people rely on their preconcieved notions, assumptions and imagination to understand what's going on below the surface...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
