Summer News


        Summer is here and so are the HOT temperatures. With this in mind here are few tips for watering more efficiently. Read your rain gauge once each week and supplement to at least one inch. The best time to water your yard is early in the morning, the second best time is just before dusk. Use the sprinkler only for watering the lawn, it’s an ineffective way for watering other plants. Put an open tuna can near the sprinkler pattern and move the sprinkler when an inch of water collects in the can. Also position the sprinkler so water does not hit the pavement. 

Drip irrigation, trickle irrigation and soaker hoses are the best way to water everything but the lawn. Once they are installed they will need to be left on a long time, because they apply water slowly. Make sure to always measure how deep the soil is dampened after one hour, two hours, etc. of watering. Then you’ll know how long to water for plants in different sections of the yard. 

June is not too late to plant annuals. You’ll have flowers to frost.

Do you have Bermuda grass contaminating your lawn? Let Mr. Greengenes’ 

help you get rid of it. Don’t forget to schedule Mr. Greengenes’ to prune spring flowering shrubs and trees.
