It’s so dry out there, let’s talk about watering!
First 2 Weeks: Water plants daily. Water enough to lightly soak the root ball.
Second 2 Weeks: Water plant material every other day. Water enough to lightly soak the root ball.
After 4 Weeks: Tip: Plants need water to soak the root ball 1-2 times per week. If rainfall (mother nature) provides sufficient water, you can forgo watering that cycle. Remember, light rainfall may not be enough water to penetrate the mulch/soil to lightly soak the root ball. It’s important to monitor new plants during the first year. Plants will need supplemental watering during hot and dry conditions.
“We have a house with a front yard and back yard. We need the lawn mowed and also have weeds in the back growing through the brick cracks that need to be removed, as well as a patch of grass that is dead and needs to be replanted.” – Lorton, VA 22079
