Efficient watering has many benefits for your garden. This guide offers easy tips for effective watering to ensure your garden thrives all season long!

Creating a water-efficient garden includes using smart watering practices that ensure your plants receive the optimal amount of moisture without wasting water.

Before you water, it’s important to check the moisture levels in your soil - overwatering can be as harmful as underwatering.

When watering, less water is delivered to the leaves and directly to the root zone, where plants absorb nutrients and moisture.

Avoid wetting the foliage, leading to fungal diseases and inefficient water use - watering cans, soaker hoses, or drip irrigation systems can help you accomplish this.

One key to efficient watering in your garden is to water deeply but less frequently. This encourages plants to develop deep root systems

Instead of giving your garden a daily light sprinkle, water thoroughly until the soil is moist several inches down, then allow the top few inches to dry out before watering again.
