Have you ever wondered how much water is actually getting on your lawn?
How much is enough?
Well, here’s an easy way to see~
Place old tuna fish or pet food cans in a straight line about 5 feet apart over the lawn when you water. You’ll easily be able to tell how much water has been used.
So how much should you use?
Most gardeners encourage watering until at least 1/2 inch of water collects in the can.
BTW, if you have planted new shrubs or trees this season, it is imperative especially in the extreme hot weather we have been and will continue to experience this upcoming week, to water the base of the plants well. Hit the leaves as well as the base of the plant at least two-three times a week with larger droplets or if you have a nozzle, set to the shower setting.

If you have the beautiful purple ornamental onion or Allium giganteum in your garden, you’ve probably noticed that the head has now gone to seed.
Either clip off the stem at the base and discard it or leave it alone and it will freely seed in other areas of your garden.
What a treat to see that neighborhood toads have selected our pond as a nursery for their tadpoles.
