DIY DEEP WATERING TIPS FOR YOUR HOME LANDSCAPE
Here are some DIY deep watering tips to ensure your plants receive the right amount of water:
- A soaker hose is a great tool for deep watering. It allows water to seep slowly into the soil, promoting deep root growth. Place the hose around the base of your plants and turn it on to a slow trickle for an extended time to ensure deep watering.
- Deep watering involves saturating the soil to 6-8 inches. Rather than watering shallowly every day, water deeply and less frequently. This promotes deep root growth and helps your plants stay healthy and disease-free.
- Mulching around your plants can help conserve moisture and reduce the need for watering. Spread a layer of organic mulch around the base of your plants to help retain moisture in the soil.
- Watering in the morning allows plants to absorb water before the sun evaporates. This can help ensure that your plants receive the right amount of water and can help prevent disease.
- A rain gauge can help you monitor how much water your plants are receiving. This can help you adjust your watering schedule to ensure your plants receive the right water.
- Plants may require more water to stay healthy during hot, dry spells. Be sure to water deeply during these times to ensure your plants receive enough moisture to remain healthy and disease-free.
