Outdoor Irrigation

Irrigation systems are relatively different for outdoor growers compared to those growing their plants indoors. In this growing season, make sure you are well-prepared for your outdoor growing and buy the best outdoor irrigation supplies at Groindoor.com. 

How Does Outdoor Irrigation Work?  

When you select your method for outdoor irrigation, you have to consider factors like electricity, access to water, and how much you want to automate it. For instance, if you prefer to grow plants in your backyard, an outdoor irrigation timer is exactly what you need to automate your entire irrigation system. Your garden will be watered automatically, and you no longer need to worry about wastage anymore. You can also use nozzles, drippers, or garden hoses along with the timers. But what if you want something different and not a system such as this one? Well, you can simply go for a watering nozzle or wand based on your personal preference and irrigate everything manually. The only downside here is, you’d have to be prepared for everything and be on the lookout every time. 

What should be the frequency of watering plants? 

The general rule of thumb is that plants should be watered every day. However, the time of year and the soil are some of the key factors that play an important role in understanding your garden’s water needs. All in all, there is a learning curve involved here.

Each plant or garden has different watering needs. So, you need to buy a soil meter in order to make sure how often your garden needs irrigation. A soil monitor can help you monitor the moisture in the soil i.e., it will help you evaluate if the soil in the garden is dry or wet so that you can time your irrigation properly. 

Outdoor plants’ water needs 

The best way to understand how much water or how often your plants need water is by checking the soil, which can be done easily by using a soil meter. For reference, here is a tip: the first inch in soil needs to be wet. Normally, some plants need less than one gallon of water in a single day, while some might need more. 

The water needs of a plant may also change as the plant grows. At the seed stage, they might not need plenty of water however, when they reach the vegetation stage, the needs will increase dramatically. Providing an appropriate amount of water ensures your plants have a steady and healthy growth cycle. 

 What is the best time to water plants?  

The best time to water your plants is morning. There are two reasons why: 

1. When plants are exposed to sunlight, they are more active, which helps them absorb nutrients and water better.  

2. The temperature is lowest in the morning, so watering at this time allows the water to get well-absorbed into the soil as there is minimal evaporation.
