Water Early in the Morning: Early mornings are the best time to water your garden, as the cooler temperatures reduce evaporation, allowing the soil to absorb the moisture effectively.
Monitor Soil Moisture: Use a moisture meter or simply stick your finger into the soil to assess its moisture level. This helps you avoid watering when it's not needed
Avoid Overwatering: Overwatering can be just as harmful as under watering. Monitor your garden for signs of water stress, like wilted leaves, before watering again.
Adjust for Plant Types: Different plants have different water requirements. Group plants with similar needs together to avoid over or under watering. Additionally, consider vertical gardening techniques to maximize space and provide shade, reducing water loss through evaporation.
Water the Roots, Not the Leaves: Water the base of the plant to prevent leaf diseases and ensure the roots receive moisture.
