Time for intervention if plants have a drinking problem

The first week of August means it is time to face your water worries. There are more hot, dry days ahead so commit now to some irrigation insurance so you won’t lose valuable trees and shrubs. If your concern over your water bill is higher than your love of a green lawn, let the lawn go dormant or “golden” for the rest of the summer. Lawns that dry out in the summer are not dead. The grass will spring back to life and green up in the fall once the rains begin. The plants that will need extra water this month are thirsty rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, blueberries and any tree or shrub planted within the last year. The rest of your landscape – including trees and shrubs – will appreciate a good soaking at least once a week; but how much water they need depends on your soil, your mulch and how much it rains. Use a hand trowel to dig into the soil near your shrubs. Check the color of your soil six inches below ground level. If the soil is dry and light in color, either do a rain dance or offer everyone a drink.
