Spring is in the Air
It's officially spring. That means the
days are longer, the temperatures warmer, and the motivation to be outside, stronger. As you think of the possibilities to bring spring to your landscape, take a moment to consider these spring tips.
- Your yard is screaming for color, but choose plants that are drought-tolerant with low-water requirements.
- Apply two to three inches of mulch in garden and flower beds, to help soil retain moisture.
- Don't forget to aerate. Aeration removes small plugs from turf to loosen compacted soil. It increases needed oxygen for plants, and allows water to better penetrate the soil, reducing runoff.
- Get the weeds out. Weeds, if left to to breed or just chopped off, will populate and steal water from your plants. When possible, remove them by hand, to uproot them completely.
- Check your irrigation system to ensure it is working properly.
- Remember no watering between 10 a.m. to 6 p.m except by hand-held hose, drip or soaker hose.
