The governor's initiative says that I shouldn't water between 10AM and 6 PM. Won't I have disease problems if I irrigate at night?

This is a common misconception. While it is true that irrigating at night will increase the humidity in your landscape, it will not be enough to encourage diseases if you are not over-watering. This is a good reason to monitor your irrigation carefully and to follow an appropriate irrigation schedule.
