We believe one of the most common misconceptions on how to irrigate our garden is to apply a little but often. We have seen the best results by gardeners who operate their watering system so it maintains water in the root zone of the plant and allow the surface to dry out.
The correct watering system will enable you to apply the maximum water in multiple applications in one night, leaving the days of no watering to dry the surface out and you can save up to 20% of your water. This will also encourage water, air and in turn nutrients, deep into the root zone. This has the added benefit to help prevent thatch build up in the root zone.
