    Watering Curing Gunite in Freezing Temps

    Our Gunite was done on Friday and we've been watering 2 times a day since Saturday. We watered it well on Sunday and got light drizzling rain too. This morning (Monday) we skipped it because it was still freezing outside when we left for work. But we sprayed it in the afternoon. Tomorrow is a repeat of today with temps expected in the high 20s before we leave for work. I'm sure the ground temp is no where near frozen. Should we spray it in the morning with temps below 32 or just wait until we get home tomorrow afternoon?

    Thanks!

    We've had a bit of precipitation here in Houston over the last week, so you can expect your soil to be moist. Unless you're completely dry, the gunite will pull some hydration out of the ground. It's cold enough right now that you don't have to worry about spraying water to try to slow down the curing process. If you water in the afternoon only, you'll be good right now, but there is no down-side to watering in the morning too (unless you don't like to play with water in the freezing temps!)

    "but there is no down-side to watering in the morning too"
    I was wondering about that. Thanks!
