However, the ideal most of us seek for, I believe, is to space plants, and use land shaping, mulches, woody beds, etc to reduce the need to keep irrigating, and eventually let the garden become a self-watering, self-sustaining system. So I believe it is wise to maintain a wide enough spacing that the garden/grove is not dependent on continual watering just to survive, though it may be necessary to occasionally add water in time of severe drought.
