Target your watering
A drip irrigation system is one of the most efficient ways to water your plants as it delivers water directly to their root system where your plants need it most. It's a good idea to install an in-line filter and flush out your dripper system at the start of the dry season so that you avoid blockages and stop ants from nesting in there.
Planning an irrigation system for your garden will make watering much easier, follow these simple tips to get started.
Keep the moisture in with mulch
Mulch is one of the simplest ways to keep moisture in your soil. It prevents weeds from growing and adds extra organic matter, which will help your plants thrive. Find out more about the different types of mulch available.
Growing ground covers also stops water from being taken from the soil and their bright colours look great.
Another easy way to maximise your water use is by using soil wetters that help your plants retain water and any available moisture.
