Are you wondering how much water you should give your garden or how often you should water it? You are not alone. Many people with kitchen gardens don’t know how they should water them. But it is not so difficult. This article discusses the two main ways to get water to your garden.
But before we talk about these two garden watering techniques, it’s important to look at some of the considerations you have to make when watering your garden. For instance, you have to know when to water your garden. The general rule of thumb is to provide your garden with at least two inches of water every week. Deep, sporadic watering has proved to be more effective than shallow, frequent watering.
Secondly, you have to consider the type of soil in your garden. For instance, clay soil is known to hold more water than sandy soil. So, if your garden has sandy soil, it will dry out faster than a garden with clay soil. You should also consider the weather conditions in your area when planning to water your garden. For example, if it’s already raining heavily, there is no need to water your garden. But if the area is dry, you should water your garden regularly to keep your plants adequately hydrated.
So how do you get water to your garden? Here are the two main techniques that you can use to provide your garden with water.
Run New Pipe
Instead of lugging a hose around your garden, you should run an underground garden plumbing system. However, this needs an outdoor faucet and should be installed by a professional plumber. With underground pipes, you can water your lawn or kitchen garden consistently without the hassle of dragging long, heavy hosepipes around.
The good thing is that underground garden plumbing doesn’t require a huge budget as long as the plumber you are working with knows how to get the job done in the shortest time possible and at a minimum cost. The whole installation process involves a few simple steps, including digging trenches, fitting an outdoor faucet, copper to PEX transition, installing a blow-out system, and mounting the faucet.
Rain Catchment System
Watering your garden with tap water can be costly since it increases your monthly water bills. You can avoid this additional cost by collecting the rainwater flowing through your downspouts and directing it to your garden for irrigation. However, the size of your rainwater system will depend on your budget and the available space. This system consists of water tanks or barrels, faucets, and an irrigation system.
