I agree sunny and that will be my challenge when setting up this new zone.
Zone 1: Raised garden on a drip system: 12 mins every 4-days
Zone 2: Sprinkler system for bushes, flowers and smaller plants: 9 mins every 4-days
Zone 3: Adding this zone to properly water 10 fruit trees: not sure yet?
The fruits trees were added to hide the cinder block and to grow as an espalier. We ran poles deep into the ground and added concrete then did our own wiring at three different levels to train and teach each of the plants to cover the wall in width but we will be limiting the height through pruning the trees so they do not grow to their full potential.
We put each of these trees in at the same time and the trees on the sunny side of the backyard have grown very quickly while the other side is really growing much slower and easily at half the rate of growth. This is all very new to us and we have a neighbor who is a master gardener who specializes in avocados helping us and showing us the way. He can help us understand the amount of water for the avocado trees (Haas and Holiday for year round avocados) and I will need to see how well that watering schedule would work for the lemon, lime, apple and orange trees or I may need to add another zone (hoping not).
I feel like a newborn here and not afraid to share or show how little I know as I learn from all of you. Thank you for your patience and your help.
