Never, repeat NEVER water at night.

First thing in the morning before sunrise, 4-6am.

I cannot go by "how long". I just check to see if the soil is dry and rough looking, and that's when I intuitively water. I more so do it on the sunniest side of the yard, which is to the south of the yard near the fence where the sun hits the hardest. The shade side, I rarely water it, as the soil is usually moist, especially now after all the heavy rains and weak winter sunshine.
