Our native gardens should not need regular watering once established, but your new baby plants do need help getting through their first few years. Checking your soil moisture with your fingers is critical to understanding when you need to water various parts of your garden.
Your garden's soil type will influence how much watering you need to do.
Different areas in your garden may require different amounts of water based on their light light exposure and position relative to trees and buildings.
Temperature also effects how much watering you need to do. A new garden should get watered from April-December.
Correct watering technique will help your garden thrive. Make sure you are watering deeply to make sure the soil is saturated.
