Also, for watering if you can run some drip tape irrigation from a cheap place like Irrigation Warehouse that will help that effort and conserve water. Run it under your weed cloth really saves water. You just have to plant on that spacing.
Melbor makes a WiFi 4 way battery powered water timer and hat actually works pretty well despite some of the reviews. You can schedule it or just turn areas on/off with your phone. Easier than an expensive Rain Bird irrigation controller.
