Hi Desert Dwellers! I am writing to you today because I am seeing a lot of stressed plants around the valley!! Please water your plants!!! Your irrigation system should run a minimum of one hour for shrubs but with these continued HOT temperatures, add another hour on. Run no more than every other day. For your trees, you want to water to a depth of 24-36 inches. This can be tested by taking a piece of re-bar and pushing it into the soil after your system has ran. The age of your tree will determine how frequently you should run your system. Placement of your emitters is very important. They should not be up against the trunk! Feeder roots grow outward, move your emitters out.
Please contact me if you would like healthy thriving plants!
