WATERING ALERT

Attention Metro Detroit residents. Current weather conditions are dry and many lawns have been drying out. Earlier in the year residents were able to water less frequently due to all the rain we had received.

Over the past few weeks we have not seen much rain and we have noticed many lawns have been drying out and have become damaged. Please be sure to keep watering your lawn and plants to ensure no further damage. If you can water your lawn in the morning. Watering in the morning ensures a dry surface for the evening hours.  Night time hours are when diseases thrive and spread the most.

While the above summer watering chart is a  good starting point other factors must be taken into consideration. Shaded areas, very sunny areas, and areas that receive reflected heat off patios and driveways will make a difference in how often they should be watered as well. If you have any questions please call us.
