I notice this time of year that people are still watering their lawns. This is the one time of year we can give our natural resources a break. A lawn only needs about an inch of water each month. I know your thinking how do I measure that? Honestly, I don’t. However, we turned off our sprinkler system back in November and let mother nature take care of it and the lawn is doing great.
You do still need to water your potted plants. Since they don’t have the luxury of consuming water from the earth they need our help. You can also cut back on this. I am watering my plants every 2 weeks or so. Now, if your plants look thirsty then give them a drink.
Enjoy the rain and turn off your sprinklers!
