    Where Does Your Water Go?

    August 1st, 2019

    Do you live in a watershed?  The answer for everyone is YES. Everyone lives in a watershed.
    A watershed is an area of land that drains to a common body of water. When it rains, rain water flows downhill until it joins the nearest lake, stream or wetland. Which way the water flows is determined by the landscape, hills and valleys. These features make up watersheds, their size, shapes and boundaries.

Only providing the lawn what it needs when it needs it.
