When to Start Watering Your Plants

Now that spring is finally here, it’s time to start thinking about your outdoor landscape. Will you be planting any new shrubs and flowers? Are you planning on keeping your lawn bright and green? There is a lot that goes into a beautiful landscape. So how do you know when you should start watering your garden, lawn and shrubs?

When to Start Watering:

  • Potted Plants – Potted plants tend to dry out more quickly than plants that grow in the ground. Water your plants in the morning or evening to ensure that the plants get plenty of water, especially during the summer months! Check the soil to see when it is dry and be sure to look out for overwatering.
  • Lawns – Don’t start watering your front lawn too early on in the season. You want to give your grass time to grow longer roots. April is known for spring showers, so unless we experience unusually low rainfall this year, hold off on watering your lawn until May.
  • New Shrubs and Plants – Until the roots of your new shrubs, trees and other plants have stabilized, they will need regular and consistent watering. For the first couple of weeks, you will want to water these plants daily. Moving forward, you can water them once every few days — and eventually once per week.
