    WATER and GRASS: What is the real need?

    July 11th, 2018

    Often, we think grass needs more water than it really does. The rule of thumb is that grass needs 1 inch of water a week. That inch can come from rain or a hose. During summer of 2017 there was only 1 period of time where we didn’t get sufficient rainfall to meet grass needs. This summer we are getting even more rain.
    The water used for irrigation is the same water coming out of your tap. It’s treated drinking water.  Irrigation can stress groundwater supplies which is where we get our drinking water from.  See more…

    Ponds with a Purpose
    Often the small ponds seen in cities and developments are thought of as landscaping features to add beauty or increase wildlife habitat. While the ponds do that, their actual purpose is more intentional; they exist to protect lakes and rivers from pollution. See more
