How do you water your roses?

As I have added a few more roses to my collection this year (total of 5 now) I am starting to wonder more about watering. By the time I add up all other watering needs in my yard (containers, newly landscaped front bed, etc) - the watering is kind of becoming a chore.

I recently read a bit about the drip system but to be honest, just reading about it gives me a headache. It sounds complicated to install and I assume professional installation would cost a bit. After having paid a ton to landscape our front yard, sod included, I really don't want to spend even more on professional assistance for gardening.

How does everyone water their roses? By hand? Soaker hose? Drip system?

I'd be curious to read more about your watering practices.

Thank you so much!
