How to Care for Your Yard and What to Plant in July

Watering: We recommend watering early in the morning as this reduces the evaporation loss. Deep watering is the best way to ensure that the entire root zone becomes properly saturated. When it comes to watering trees, be sure to saturate the soil at least three feet deep and for shrubs, drench the soil at least one foot deep You will want to deep water your trees every other day for the next few weeks and continue to monitor them so they are not over or under-watered.

November Landscape & Garden Tips

Maybe because of the cool weather and lower temperatures, you think less effort is needed but these are the perfect conditions to care for your yard. The November weather creates an environment that allows for the most efficient root growth (and foliage growth, depending on what type of plant you have in your yard). The weather changing also means that you must update your watering schedule to match those changes.
