Watering your lawn, trees, and shrubs is crucial during periods of dry weather. Homeowners wanting a vibrant, green backyard need to water regularly and be ready to bring out the garden hose when the rainfall dries up. Underwatering will leave the backyard looking brown and put the long term health of your plants at risk. Proper backyard watering is key to a great looking home.
Some areas restrict the hours or days that homeowners can water, so be sure to check with your local municipality before implementing a regular watering schedule. Be mindful of any watering restrictions in place, but be aware that these restrictions often do not apply to new plantings. New plantings often require extensive watering, and homeowners must be mindful to provide that or the plants health will be at risk.
Protecting your investment in plants requires giving them the water they need to grow. Not providing enough water will leave plants unhealthy and susceptible to disease. However, plants can also be impacted by overwatering so homeowners want to be sure that they are mindful during the process. Watering instructions for your backyard will depend on the weather rainfall and the type of plants you have.
