Reduce the need for watering by choosing water-efficient and drought-tolerant plants, includingthose native to your site, and plant them in the right place.
Micro-irrigation systems deliver small volumes of water directly to the root zone throughlow-flow-rate emitters, such as micro-spray jets, bubblers or drip tubes.
Irrigation should be set to run in the early hours. Morning water pressure is usually better; foliage will have time to dry before the evening dew or afternoon showers set in.
