If you are not getting enough rain, your flowers will show it. The most important thing for your flowers is that they get enough water. With many flowers, approximately watering once per week might be enough. You do need to do research on the type of flowers you have, however, because they may need less or more water. Fortunately, you can install a drip irrigation system to keep your flowers watered. Below is some more information about this so you can get started.
It can take a lot of time to water flowers by hand. It can also get costly if you water your flowers with a garden hose. Irrigation would work well for you and make it much easier for you to keep your flowers watered.
There are different types of irrigation methods you can use, including:
With drip irrigation, tubing, much like a garden hose, is snaked around the flowers. The tubing has small holes that run along the length of it. These holes are called emitters. When you turn the water on, water comes out of the emitters and directly to the ground around your flowers. The water drips out of the emitters very slowly so there is no water runoff. Instead, the water sinks into the soil and to the roots of the flowers.
To make things easier for you, you can install a timer with your drip irrigation system. You can set the timer to automatically turn on the water and then turn off the water at certain times.
Soaker hoses are made with a porous material, such as recycled rubber. This allows the water to seep through the porous hose and onto the soil. The water continues to ooze from the ose so the water gets down to the roots of your plants.
You can place the soaker hose on top of the ground, or you can bury it right under the soil so it does not show. You screw the end of the soaker hose to a water hose. You can then simply turn on the water when you want to water your flowers.
