Summer is here, and that means that it’s time to get away for a little vacation. While you’re planning your adventures, don’t forget to make arrangements for watering outdoor plants because Mother Nature is fickle, and you can’t always count on the rain to fall.
Here are some simple suggestions that will help you out:
- Plant a “nanny” bottle next to your plants. These Terra Cotta containers gradually release water into the dirt as it is needed. Before you go, be sure to test this as the duration of the drip will depend from plant to plant and garden to garden.
- Remember to adjust and set the timer on your sprinklers. These can be shortened, lengthened, and increased, depending on your watering needs. You can even attach a specialty system to your outdoor faucet specifically for your garden areas.
- If you have potted plants, move them out of direct sunlight as this will help them conserve water while you’re away.
Finally, you can remove all worry by enlisting the assistance of our professional gardeners here at Rosehill Gardens who would be happy to trim the grass, prune the vines, and water while you’re away. Just give us a call at 816-941-4777 to learn more!
