Answer: Every third day
Explanation: Proper watering is the key. A long low soaking is better that frequent quick watering. Place a milk jug or a 5 gallon bucket by a plant and put a couple small holes in the bottom Fill the containers quickly and let the water trickle out slowly This will get a good penetrating watering and only a couple of times a week will be needed Watch the plants that wilt first. They will be a good sign it's time to water again

Foley Landscape Services
ProMatcher
Answer: Every other day
Explanation: Use water wisely. Water plants when they need it, not by the clock or calendar. Water according to your soil type and the weather. Do not apply water faster than the soil can absorb it. Choose the right method. A soaker hose applies water directly to the soil and reduces evaporation. If you are planting a few plants in an existing planting bed, hand watering can be an effective way to get the new plants the water they need, while not over-watering the rest of the bed. Remember…. • Avoid planting in hot, dry weather, which can easily stress plants. If you must plant in summer, plant in the cool of the morning. • Watering early in the morning means less water is lost to evaporation. • Even drought tolerant plants need regular water until they are established.

Landscaping & lawn care . Reynaldo navarro
Answer: Once a day
Explanation: Most new plantings need regular watering. You could just as easily water every other day and still yield good results, though, it mainly depends on the soil and weather of your area, and if the plants even need to be watered at all. Slower, deeper, less frequent waterings ensure that the rootball is getting water and also helps the plant to be drought resistant in the future.
LawnTech llc
Answer: Once a day
Explanation: Use water wisely. Water plants when they need it, not by the clock or calendar. Water according to your soil type and the weather. Do not apply water faster than the soil can absorb it. Watering a newly planted tree depends on things like the amount of rainfall you get in your area, wind conditions, temperatures and what season it is, how well the soil holds water and drainage. Watering early in the morning means less water is lost to evaporation.

OCD Lawn Care
Answer: Once a day
Explanation: When planting, water plants as soon as you get them in the ground. Allow the water to soak in and drain, and water again, until the soil is thoroughly moistened. Spring through Fall, When Weather is Dry For the first week or so after planting… Water just-planted plants frequently - daily or every other day - as the roots will not be able to access soil moisture from a very large area until they begin to grow. After the first week or so... Unless the weather is extremely hot and dry, you may be able to decrease watering frequency, perhaps to two or three times per week, for the next month or so. Always REMEMBER-Water plants when they need it, not by the clock or calendar. Water according to your soil type and the weather. Do not apply water faster than the soil can absorb it. Water DEEPER not more frequently!!!

native sun landscaping
Answer: Twice a day
Explanation: This question is kind of hard to answer. If the water isn't evaporating quickly that day, twice is the most you would need to water. If you have fresh sod planted, the best gauge is your feet & hands. The sod will need to be kept moist, not soaked until it roots in. Keeping the sod moist will keep it alive and keeping the soil it is on moist will make the roots want to root in.
