Reno Landscaping : Winter Watering
One of the biggest stresses on our plant life is winter desiccation. If there has been less than a 1/2 in. of natural precipitation ( rain, snow, etc.) in a 3 week period, it is advised to:
– water all recently installed trees and shrubs ( less than 3 yrs old)
– water all broadleaf evergreens
– water all exposed evergreens and plants on south facing slopes.
By this time of the year your water should have already been shut off and your system winterized. Using a hose or bucket should be just fine but if neither of those options work for you, Action Lawn & Landscape can help by temporarily turning your watering system on and allowing it to run a few minutes until the plants are well saturated and then shutting the system back down until Spring. Neglecting your landscapes through the Winter can make it hard for them to come back in the Spring strong and healthy.
