I soak it down good the first time and let the irrigation do the rest... I might have to turn on the hose when I'm in the neighborhood if there is no irrigation, but the 2 or 3 times a day is unnecessary in most cases and every other day with deep soakings are generally adequate...

Since there may be alot of lawn to repair, I was thinking of doing what Riggle did in soaking the seed in water for 72 hours, before sowing... He claimed that it helped, even after the seed was redried after soaking...
makes sense...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
