Water-Wise Wanderlust: How to Keep Your Garden Hydrated While You're Away

Water-Wise Wanderlust: How to Keep Your Garden Hydrated While You're Away

Amy Gray |

Spring break is finally here, and with the warmer weather and longer days, it's tempting to leave town and take a break from the daily grind. But don't let your yard and garden hold you back from enjoying your time away! There's a range of options available to ensure your garden stays hydrated even when you're not around.

For shorter trips and smaller plant collections, in-ground watering solutions like self-watering globes offer a convenient option. These devices slowly release water directly to the roots of your plants, helping to prevent diseases and root rot.

For those looking for an alternative non-plastic method, underground watering containers such as watering clay pots are another fantastic option. The porous clay material allows water to seep through, effectively watering your soil from the ground up.

While I'm a huge fan of my DIG drip irrigation kit for day-to-day watering needs, it's indispensable for longer trips. With this kit, you can easily set your watering schedule after checking the weather forecast, ensuring your plants get the right amount of water they need.

Concerned about your lawn, especially with unpredictable temperature swings? Fear not, as Weathermatic offers a solution with their rain sensors and advanced scheduling features. These innovative tools ensure your lawn receives the perfect amount of water, regardless of the weather conditions.

So, whether you're taking a short getaway or an extended vacation, there's no need to worry about your garden suffering in your absence. With these irrigation solutions, you can enjoy your time off knowing that your garden is well taken care of.
