With Spring upon us (more so in some parts of the country than others!), it’s time to start thinking about irrigation and landscaping. If you’re in the West, particularly, you’ll need to adjust your irrigation timers soon to increase your watering, if you haven’t already. If you shut off your system for the Winter, make a note on your calendar to turn the system back on when the drier season begins.
Remember: the key is to apply only as much water as the plants need for healthy growth. Watering is typically best done in the early morning when wind and temperatures are low. Established plants tend to do better when watering is done less often and deeper. As the weather conditions change through Spring and into Summer, make sure to fine-tune your watering program for proper watering.
