Sloping areas in our garden

Sloping areas in our garden

Good morning friends, in today's space we want to talk about the sloping areas of the land that we can have for example in the garden. Think that during the hottest seasons .. if we have grass .. this tends to dry quickly so we must pay attention to the irrigation of these areas.

For example, in the hills and on similar terrain we will take care that this does not happen, since the grass in these areas tends to dry even more since the water slips and does not penetrate the ground.

Keeping the soil in these areas humid would be ideal for us to have green areas, well developed and strong. To do this we will need to water more frequently and insistently those areas that are inclined.

To achieve greater efficiency in irrigation we have different solutions, for example, dividing the irrigation cycle into two or three shorter cycles than before. Imagine if we water the lawn for thirty minutes … we will do it in three times of ten minutes.

After a couple of hours, we will repeat the action and so many times as necessary .. if it is very hot and too sunny we will increase the repetitions.

Remember that the soil we have will have to be well watered to grow strong and healthy, it is not worth watering half an hour if we know that the soil does not absorb it because the area is down the hill.

It is better to water our plants and grass that are in this situation with more intensity but less frequently … than a long time and little intensity.

We hope that with this form of irrigation we will find a solution to these plants and grass that dry in summer and times of warmer weather. When the sun falls in this way and we have land with sloping areas .. it is the best form of irrigation.

Sloping plants are planted in deep holes and filled with good quality soil, so they will absorb water beforehand. Finally we will make a barrier to the sides of the plants, for example on the lower side of the slope so that the water will be retained longer and will absorb it better.
