Excessive overhead watering should be avoided as it can promote fungus, and or diseases. I believe that as long as the shrubs receive an average of 1" or water/week during the growing season, that supplimental watering is not much needed. Just make sure that when planting, that the correct plant is placed in the optimum location.

If you fail to plan ..... you plan to fail.
