Major repair around the watering system
The watering system here at The Tropical Paradise is, for all intents and purposes, above ground. It's buried, but only a few inches, so I can always get to it. To me, that's the secret of success, being able to make sure that the watering system is functioning properly. I think I developed this way of thinking because of interest in aquariums early in life. Whenever you are dealing with water, you have to keep an eye on things.
A garden is always growing and changing. And because of that, the upkeep never ends. There is always something to do. Many people don't like this, but I do. This is a "puttering" or "tinkering" mentality. I find doing this kind of thing very therapeutic, and the side effect is a nice garden!
