    Hi felitap50. The deck is shiny because just before the photo it had rained. Normally it is a matte finish.

    Hi. I did not paint the containers but you could match the colour in the photo and paint pot that you own. The problem with paint is that is might start to chip off after awhile depending on how good the paint job is. ;-) I hope this helps!

    What are the plant and flowers in the large pot? I think it is a very clean look.

    I purchased the chairs at Southlands Nursery in Vancouver a few years back. I hope this helps!

    Hi. These were purchased at Haney Pottery but sadly are no longer in business. They are often described as rustic unglazed pottery. Maybe you can do a google search in your area to see what pops up.

    The trend seems to be going for more durable lightweight pots made of fibreglass now. A lot of the newer containers look like the old school pottery....maybe you can find something that looks similar but will weather better for you. I hope this helps!

Ask a friend for help. Having a neighbor or friend water while you’re away can take the risk out of leaving a garden unattended for a week or more. Before you leave, walk the helper around your garden, pointing out which plants should be hand-watered and sharing your garden’s other specific needs. It can be helpful to leave a watering schedule and anything needed for the job, such as hoses and watering cans, in plain sight. If you have an edible garden, encourage your garden helper to harvest and enjoy any bounty while you’re gone.

2. Water less frequently, but more thoroughly. Whether your plant is in a pot or in the ground, aim to soak the root zone when you water. This helps promote healthy root systems and allows plants to go longer between waterings.Water containers gradually until the soil is fully saturated and water begins to drip out of the base of the pot (excluding containers with cactus and succulents). For annuals and perennials in beds, use a soaker hose, drip irrigation or a sprinkler to fully saturate the soil. Water lawns about 1 inch per week. Give large, mature trees a monthly deep soak.Browse watering and irrigation supplies
