August is just around the corner (Summer is ✈️ by!), so to end Julys Smart Irrigation Month, here are a couple final tips to increase awareness for water conservation.

Think about your yard 🤔 | Select plants that have low water requirements and will thrive in your local climate. Think about the unique features of your yard, including sun and shade, dry and damp areas, plant size, and how you plan to utilize each section of your yard.

Save grass🌱 for functional areas | Plant turf only in areas where it will be used and enjoyed. Water your grass with sub surface drip irrigation. Leave steep slopes and other hard to water areas for drought tolerant ground cover or perennial color.

Nice job, Matt Berglund .

Nice to see!

In continuation of Julys Smart Irrigation Month, Ill be sharing some tips every week on how to conserve water. Its a lot easier than you think! 💧

Plant shade trees 🌳 | We have all enjoyed the benefit of standing under a shade tree in the summer. Shade trees reduce overall temperatures and reduce water evaporation from soil. They can also be the highlight of your landscape!

Healthy soil is critical to plant success 🌷 | Fertilizing your yard or garden replenishes lost nutrients and ensures plants have the food they need to grow and thrive. You don’t work well when you are hungry, and your plants don’t either!
