We’re in the hot and dry spell of summer here. Water landscapes wisely to help them thrive:
– Only water landscape plants when dry. Plants suffer more from overwatering than underwatering.
– Water the plant’s root zone, not the foilage, to save water and reduce disease.
– Adjust sprinkler heads to water plants, not sidewalks and curbs.
– Set timers to avoid over-watering
– Plan now to install more native shrubs and groundcover plants to reduce water demand in the future.
