Water is a precious resource, a fact made very apparent during a drought. Here are six tips to help your lawn and garden get through a drought, without wasting water.
- Use Mulch
If you haven’t already added 2-3 inches of mulch to your gardens, now is the time. Mulch prevents weeds, reduces soil moisture loss, and keeps soil, and roots, cool. Roots can stop working if the soil gets too warm, making it even harder for the plants to handle the drought. Mulch is a must have for every garden!
