Elizabeth Michels Pinizzotto on May 31, 2017have you looked at hose/sprinkler timers? I have seen them at Lowe's and Home Depot.Helpful Reply
Lora on May 31, 2017I would think if you don't hire someone to do it you will come home to brown, crispy plants. Maybe a handyman service or something?Helpful Reply
Mir Graham on May 31, 2017If you have a timed irrigation system, you would need to move the sprinkler heads to hit the pots, or move the pots to be in the area of the sprinkler. Otherwise, you can use the hoses with timers. I just don't think they run for months at a time.Helpful Reply

Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on May 31, 2017Install a basic water timer to any existing irrigation system you already have in place. Make sure plants are in a "zone" where they will receive the appropriate amount of water every time they are programmed to turn on. Not expensive, easy to install, any home improvement store will carry them.Helpful Reply
