This year, we have had an incredibly dry Autumn along the Colorado Front Range. According to the Colorado State University Extension, fall and winter watering during pro-longed dry periods will help your landscape stay healthy. Newly planted grass, trees, plants and shrubs are most susceptible to damage but established landscapes deserve a good drink of water too.
You only need to water about two times a month, unless your location is particularly sunny and windy. Be sure to only water when both the air and soil temperatures are at or above 40°F and there is no snow cover on the ground.
Per our earlier blog post, don't forget to disconnect your garden hose from the hose bib when you are done.
