The water needed to water the garden can come from many sources: for example, tap water, rainwater collected from buckets, water collected from water tanks or wells. Because tap water is wasteful, there are many ways to replace tap water for irrigation.
When you use rainwater from a reservoir or water tower for irrigation, you need a water pump. The bucket pump can be installed directly on the edge of the bucket or you can also use a garden pump (booster pump), which can easily pump water out of the tank.
In order to choose the ideal hose, you should measure the length of the hose that needs to be covered from the water pipe to the vegetation before purchasing.
Almost all garden irrigation recommends the use of a smaller diameter hose (such as ½"), especially when you need to irrigate manually. For those who need to irrigate multiple points often, you should choose a larger diameter hose (for example, ¾"). At the same time, the water pipes buried in the ground should also be selected with larger diameters.
Water the plants in the morning: The best time to water the garden is in the morning or before noon. When the temperature is still low, water will slowly seep into the ground, and plants can also absorb water in the midday high temperature-this is when they need water the most.
Watering plants from the roots: Although watering plants from the top is faster, most plants will not absorb it-flowering plants and vegetables especially like root watering. Plants with dense leaves, such as roses, often get fungal diseases when the leaves dry unhappily.
Smaller times, more times: When it comes to watering, there is a saying that goes like this: More times, less times. Even if water is occasionally watered, it is easier to seep into the soil when the amount of water is sufficient. This helps plant roots grow and can better cope with drought.
Recognize the needs of plants: To understand how much water a plant needs, you usually only need to look at its leaves: many thin, soft leaves indicate a high demand for water. Plants with thick, hard or hairy leaves have less water requirements.
Pay attention to the soil: How long you need to water the plants depends on the type of soil in your garden, for example, clay stores a lot of water, so you only need to water occasionally. Sand can hardly store water, so it must be watered frequently.
