Early Bird Garden Tips

As Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Water is the driver of nature.”  So let’s tackle that number one water guzzler right off the bat. 

1) If you water your lawn frequently, it actually becomes less drought-tolerant. Do you remember this tip shared earlier in the month? Improve your soil and make conscious efforts to reduce your chemical and water usage. And when seeding or reseeding your lawn, use varieties that are drought, disease and insect resistant.
2) Water early in the AM.
3) Use drip irrigation whenever possible.
4) When watering with a hose, irrigate the roots, not the foliage. Avoid overhead irrigation use. This can cause diseases with your crop and plants.
5) Use mulch to keep the soil cool and moist.
6) Remember to plant native and drought-tolerant materials as part of your mix.
