Watering Rules Come Back To Haunt Us

Fear not, your plants will not perish. Even your evergreens will continue to gleam.

Rainfall has been scarce and that’s opened the door to the return of Stage 1 watering rules. But fear not, your plants will not perish. Even your evergreens will continue to gleam.

That’s because your landscape is preparing for its long winter slumber so it doesn’t need as much water as it did in summer. In fact, watering too much just might wake the living dead, creating a lawn filled with feasting fungi! Watering your landscape once a week is more than enough.

Consider following the holiday watering method. Pick one holiday per month for the next five months, and water everything well on that holiday.

Even though we have returned to once-a-week watering, chances are excellent your landscape will survive. Pay close attention to the current watering advice to learn your recommended watering amounts.
