It’s common knowledge that water makes the grass, trees, and flowers grow. However, too much water can kill your landscaping. If your business follows these watering tips, you should have no problems this growing season whether you’re growing Sedums that require infrequent watering, or Peonies that are rather thirsty:
- Water thoroughly when first planting. Then wait several days to check your plant’s soil for moisture. If the top 1 inch of soil is drier than a damp sponge, add water to re-moisten.
- Check your new plants once or twice per week for the first month or two after planting. This is especially important if you planted between May and August.
- Water your plants slowly. This allows the soil to absorb the moisture and lessens runoff and waste.
Keep in mind that as with any landscape your water needs will vary depending on the size, whether it’s a formal/informal environment, rain, weed growth, etc. and you should plan and adjust according to these variables.
