Tips from Toby – Spring & Summer Watering
It's the lifeblood of our lawns, landscape and even foundation of our homes - but most of us don't water properly. Watering too much is often worse than not watering at all. Do you know how much you should be watering? How much rainfall did you get at your home this week? Do you water around your foundation? These are all important things to know to have a healthy lawn and home. It is all of our duty to water responsibly as water becomes an every more valuable commodity - but even if you're not in the mood to be "green", keep in mind - you will save a lot of money by watering properly and avoiding damage to your lawns, plants and home, so either way - we all win!
