Now is a great time to adjust your drip system settings from your summer program to your fall and winter program. We talk to people every day who water their plants every day to every other day for only 15 to 30 minutes at a time, which is not ideal. It is best to think of running your drip system more in terms of hours as opposed to only minutes. Drippers will generally water anywhere from 1 gallon to 6 gallons per hour. Most shrubs require 6-8 gallons of water at each watering depending on size and most trees will require anywhere from 25-50 gallons of water or more at each watering depending on size. Be sure to water no more than every 10-14 days through the winter on most trees and shrubs. If you are not sure how much your plants need please feel free to contact us.
