If in times of prolonged drought there is a chance of damage to the vegetation, it must be irrigated. If this is done periodically (weekly), plants will become accustomed that this does not occur daily and will take root deeper in the soil. If irrigation is done late in the day there is also less loss through evaporation.

Species can be grouped in accordance with their water requirements; the irrigation schedule can be adjusted accordingly.
