  1. It all depends on your weather, type of soil, and plants being grown. For example, clay soil holds moisture better than sandy soil. A good rule of thumb is one inch of water per week, which may translate to everyday if your soil is sandy and weather is hot, to once a week. A better guide than "how often" is "how deep". You need to water deeply and thoroughly so that the soil is moist to a depth of at least 8 inches, though a good 12 inches is preferred. This will result in the best root development and plant growth.
