When dealing with garden beds, whether flowers or veg and herbs, keep the beds themselves evenly moist. Water just once or twice a week, specifically in the morning or late afternoon if entirely necessary. This ensures not only reduced water evaporation, but the timing ensures that the plants have enough time to utilise the water in the soil before being flooded with more.
Avoid watering leaves or plant heads to avoid mould formation, instead use a light mist or spray level to focus on the soil top and stem of the plant, encouraging water around the base where it can urge root growth and strength. If you do not have time to water when needed, try a simple irrigation system for your space that can be timed, or turned on at the right times, to cover a wider area without having to move around it constantly.
If you have large sections of lawn, do your best to protect them from excessive heat. While most grass can do well in the high 20s of celsius, anything over 30 degrees will start to cause issues. If the temperature rises, avoid cutting the grass too short and instead leave it standing at about five centimetres. This protects the lower, more delicate spaces from the harsh light and ensures that the grass will continue to grow even if the top layer dies off or withers. Grass is integral in keeping moisture within a soil bed, as well as stopping erosion from occurring.
To prevent the growth of weeds, plant within the beds so that the plants form dense areas to minimise the space available for weeds to develop. The use of mulch prevents weed seeds from sprouting. If you want to pull weeds that are appearing, ensure to get the root out as well to minimise more regrowth.
