AUGUST ACTIVITIES

This is a good month to take a short trip away from your garden (to a cooler location, hopefully) make a list of things to water before you leave. Check your automatic equipment to make sure it is in order and functioning properly. Leave a list for the person watching your garden to check periodically.

Q: We are now having severe water rationing. Our home is only five years old. We are taking out our lawn and we have just begun to landscape, leaving the existing trees and some shrubs.
