What Houzz contributors are saying:

Genevieve Schmidt added this to Pacific Northwest Gardener: What to Do in May
Check your watering system. Now's the time to make sure your irrigation system is in good working order. As the days heat up, you'll be relying on it to provide your plants with water just as it's needed. To test, run each system manually for at least five minutes to make sure there are no leaks or no repairs needed. Leaks are usually obvious, with geysers of water and noisy splashes making the source apparent.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to California Gardener: What to Do in July
Water: Efficiency equals money in your pocket. Soaker hoses and drip irrigation are ideal. The slow rate and direct-to-soil application translates into reduced evaporation, overspray and runoff, which, in turn, translate into reduced water use and weed growth. If you’ve already got an irrigation system, now’s a good time to give it a tuneup. Station by station, turn on the water and observe what’s happening. Adjust, repair and replace components as needed to make sure you’re getting the most out of your system. Why not switch to a smart irrigation timer now? You’ll get plenty of savings at this peak water-use time of the year — and maybe a rebate from your local water provider.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's August Garden Checklist
Water deeply and less frequently. Light, frequent waterings will simply encourage shallow roots, which will not serve your plants well in times of heat and dry weather. It's preferable to water more deeply but less often, encouraging your plants' roots to dig down deep into the soil. Avoid watering directly onto the foliage of your plants, and water earlier in the morning or later in the day to avoid rapid evaporation. Better yet, install drip irrigation or soaker hoses to direct water closer to the plants' roots.
What Else to do in February in Your California GardenDepending on how quickly your climate warms up, there's a lot you can do this month — including winter pruning and planting of spring flowers and vegetables, which can be sped up by the warming effect of a raised bed, as shown. Deal with frost damage. If winter frosts hit some of your plants, wait until later this month to prune off the damage. Get traditional winter plantings in the ground. Now's time to plant bare-root roses, fruit trees, berries, even shade trees. Keep the roots moist until you're ready to plant. Don't buy bargain plants with dried-out roots.Plant cool-season annual flowers. They should peak in midspring and last until hot weather: calendulas, dianthus, Iceland poppies, pansies, snapdragons, violas and more. Provide the sunniest spot you can find in your garden. Set out cool-season vegetables. These include broccoli, lettuce, spinach and more. Swiss chard is really easy. Prune roses. Finish pruning this month except in cold-climates such as the high mountains. As a rule, cut back hybrid tea roses by about a third, and leave three to five canes sprouting from the base. Shrub roses need less precise pruning — basically, shear them to control the size and shape. Fertilize all roses after pruning. Prune fruit trees. Prune and spray deciduous fruit trees, such as apple, peach, apricot and pear. Check on the how-to with expert books or advisers at your local nursery.Plant summer-blooming bulbs. In a month filled with daffodils, think about planting bulbs to bloom in late spring and summer: tuberous begonias, gladiolus, tigridias and more.Snails and slugs. February could be declared California Snail Month. They like it wet and warmish (but not hot). Watch for telltale signs of chewed leaves or the creatures themselves, and scatter pet-safe bait.More: More regional garden guidesHouzz guide to growing cool-season cropsStep-by-step guide to pruning roses

8. An automatic drip system. People told us, they did. But we didn't listen, and because of that we killed a lot of plants over 12 years. Last year we finally had an irrigation system put in.

Marianne Lipanovich added this to How to Install a Drip Irrigation System
Do the math. There is a limit to how much water the tubing can handle. Start by adding the total outflow of all the emitters you plan to use. The maximum for ½-inch polyethylene tubing is 150 gph. That can mean 150 1-gph emitters, 300 ½-gph emitters or only 75 2-gph emitters. If you’re using ¼-inch tubing, the maximum is even smaller: 15 gph. If your planned water flow exceeds the recommended maximum, you’ll need to either use larger tubing or add a second circuit to your system. You’ll also need a separate circuit for microsprinklers and sprayers.
Soaker hoses. Other hose-end options include soaker hoses and sprinklers. You’ll still have to attach the hose and turn the water on and off, but you won’t need to stay with the hose while you’re watering. If you’re forgetful about turning the water off, you can get a timer that attaches to your system and will turn it off (and sometimes on) for you. Soaker hoses can be snaked through garden beds next to the plants. Attach a hose to them, turn them on and let the water slowly seep into the ground. For an edible garden, choose one in which the water seeps out of the sides rather than sprays out the top of the hose.Soaker hoses work very well for closely planted edibles and those in larger containers or garden beds. You can cover them with mulch; just be sure that the mulch doesn’t crowd the stems of the plants.
