Question and answer
What are recomendations of addressing drought
Mulch heavily all flower and soil beds. Mulch helps keep water in the soil. [ Do not use rocks/gravel because they add heat to the soil and moisture evaporates faster. Mow grass (Fescue, Rye, Kentucky Blue Grass) higher: 3-3.5" to promote deeper root growth and hold more moisture. Aerate the lawn and fill the holes with compost so the water can infiltrate deeper. If you intend to prune, do so before April or don’t prune. Pruning stimulates growth, which needs more water. Existing growth will also provide additional shade to the soil, helping to retain moisture. Do not
use high nitrogen fertilizers during a drought. They encourage growth but the plants will need more water. Fix or replace any broken sprinklers and repair leaks. Keep your lawn as healthy as possible. A healthy lawn will survive better. Many lawns can go very dry and still come back. Attach a water efficient spray nozzle to your hose and use it to mist your lawn to build up humidity for a few minutes at the end of the day. Check with your local water agency for possible rebates on low water usage irrigation products. ]
