Water Your Lawn Wisely


The summer heat usually requires you to water your plants and lawn more often. To cut down on water evaporation, put down a layer of organic mulch around your plants. To further reduce evaporation, water your lawn and plants in the morning hours, when the temperature is cooler and the winds are lighter. Be sure to adjust your sprinklers so they water only your lawn and gardens--not the neighbor's lawn, sidewalk, and driveway! Finally, while your sprinkler is running, check the hose for any leaks or drips.
