I’d have to say it’s the most misunderstood concept in gardening and landscape we have here in the desert. You really need to pick up a copy of “Landscape Watering By The Numbers” We have these FREE in our landscape and gardening centre or you can click on the above link. As you can see in the picture we’re talking about gallons and gallons of water at one watering depending on the size of the plant. Most of our irrigation systems are “drip” and apply very small amounts of water or low volume amounts over a given time and have to run “hours” not minutes to water properly!
