Water for the plants in your garden is like food for your family members in your home; something that you must provide unless you want the unit to perish. As long as it is raining, you need not worry about watering your plants. However, as soon as the summer starts with the sun rays mercilessly drying out the moisture in the soil, your plants need help. They need to be watered daily; if possible twice a day.
Some Important Facts About Garden Watering Tools
The garden watering tools would work well if you would have completed a few preliminary tasks. First and foremost you would need to prepare your soil to hold moisture for as long it is possible. It does not matter how good are your garden watering tools if your soil is unable to hold the water in for sufficient time. Enrich your garden’s soil with enough organic matter so it would be capable to hold in water better than say, sandy or gravel based top soil.
A great plus point that would reduce your task of keeping your plants watered well would be the proper landscaping of your garden. You could enhance the utility of your garden watering tools when the garden is organised according to the needs of its plants. In this way you cut not only your effort but also the water requirement.
Another great way to maximise the outcome of watering is mulching the planting beds. This is best done in the month of May whereby you would have the soil capable of holding in as much moisture as it is needed while at the same time regulating the core temperature to moderate warmth for the best comfort and growth of your plants.
Whatever the garden watering tools you are using, remember to water your plants according to their individual needs, as much as it is possible. Check out how much water your sprinkler distributes so you would know how long you should turn it on. Remember, too much water and your plants would rot from the roots; too little water and they would dry up. Take care you give just the right amount of water.
According to the experts the best time for watering is the time between midnight and 4 AM. Too early in the evening and you would invite fungus to set in, too late in the morning and your risk your plants from being burnt. The midnight watering would be just right for your plants. Time your watering tools accordingly.
