Your lawn should receive irrigation water in a manner that the application rate does not exceed the rate that your lawn’s soil can absorb it.
The rate at which the soil in your lawn can absorb moisture is dependent on many factors like soil type, compaction and aeration, soil structure and more. Sandy soils will hold very little water compared to loam or clay soils.
Additionally, make sure soils have proper drainage to avoid prolonged periods of moisture. Any excess amounts of water can cause many problems with Turfgrass. Irrigation run times should be adjusted so that water does not run off.
