Real rain showers thankfully mean freedom from watering in this early dry spell of wind and heat. Natural rainfall is always best but while summer storms are so far and few between, the questions what, when, where and how long to water are answered by more questions.
- Are the plants established or new to the landscape?
- Are the soils similar to clay, sand or somewhere in between?
- Are the plants wilted in the morning or only in the afternoon?
- Are the plants exotic or native?
As the summer kicks off into full swing, 360 will elaborate on the answers that will make for a water wise landscape.
