    By that time the sun shouldn't be too strong, just try to keep it off plants if you can.

    its best to water late in the afternoon or in the evening. Never water in the hottest part of the day. It burns your lawn. We water 6 am or after 6 here in Northern California

    "Water the ground, not the plant." Early in the morning and at dusk are the best times to water your plants, so you are in good shape there. Warning: these are also the worst times for mosquitoes and their diseases. Best wishes 😇

    Any watering is better than a dying lawn from no water, so, of course it's OK.

    I prefer watering in the early morning hours starting at 4AM. I have a sprinkler system with a timer (no, I don't get up that early to water). At that hour the water has time to seep into the soil but the grass will dry off when the sun comes up. I don't like water sitting on my plants for too long.

    Depending on where you are, 5PM-6PM might be too early (here it's still sunshine and hot - water evaporates too quickly). That might not be the case in your location however, if you're restricted to watering between those hours, then that's what you have to do.
