Is Your Landscape Drowning?
Despite drought conditions, one of the more common problems homeowners have is drowning their landscape by over-watering.
Usually, causes are related to improper irrigation, such as incorrect or broken heads, clogged lines and improperly timed zones. Over-watering causes a multitude of problems, from encouraging the growth of certain weeds, like dollarweed, to the development of fungal problems to the run-off of valuable top soil.
Over-watering also contributes to the mounting water shortage. There are several state, county and city government agencies that have placed strict regulations on watering. Please be sure to check with your local water management district to determine if there are any restrictions in your area or you could be facing fines and add to the increasing shortage.
