Where should I water my trees and perennials, at the base or at the drip line? I live in southeast Texas and have had no rain for months. Trying to make sure watering is done correctly.

For most plants and trees, the rule of thumb is that their roots will extend out as far as their foliage. If the drip line falls within that circle around the plant, you are fine. If not, you will need to add extenders to allow the water to get close enough to the plant for the plant to use the water.
