My favorite type of watering is the kind where I don’t have to do a thing.
Just let Mother Nature open the skies.
Another way to keep this water on your property is to store it. Rain barrels are easy to make & your plants love this water much more than what comes from the tap. Here’s a link to how to make your own rain barrel.
On our property, we have eight containers. On the side of my house where no one can really see, I have kept these barrels blue. In the places on view, I have spray painted them so they are more decorative. The plants don’t really care what color they are; they just want what’s inside!
The water is mainly used for our vegetable garden & for new plants in the landscape. The rest of the yard relies on Mother Nature for watering. She’s been doing a great job this year!
