Answer: Sounds to me as though you have done everything possible to ensure the good health of your plants. Rain will help, but a drip system would be ideal. Or a reliable neighbor who can at least check to make sure the plants get adequate moisture if rainfall is sparse. Best wishes with your landscape!
