  • It's definitely time to start your summer watering schedule if you did not do so in April. We simply did not get enough rain to sufficiently infiltrate the soil at the deeper root zones, so you must start locking in some deep moisture now before the weather and the soils warm up.
  •  A way to get ready for summer is to clean up the outside edges of woody shrubs and flowering perennials.
