This is How Much You Should Be Watering This Winter

In winter, even though your lawn and plants are dormant, your soil still needs consistent watering to keep it healthy. One of the biggest mistakes you can make with your lawn’s overall health is to turn your sprinkler system off during our winter months.

We recommend that you water one ten-minute burst one day per week during the winter.

Also, keep in mind that many of the newer sprinkler controllers have a seasonal adjustment which is easy to use with our watering guidelines.

Important Note for Rotary Head Sprinklers and Drip Systems:
If you have rotary head sprinklers (they slowly turn and send out long streams of water), we recommend running twice as long as you would regular sprinklers since it takes them longer to put out the same amount of water. Drip Zones (drip systems work by maintaining a level of moisture in the soil.) We recommend that they run daily or close to it (roughly 1 to 2 minutes per day in the winter.) Since various drip lines water slightly differently, it is important to pay attention to your beds to ensure they get the appropriate amount of water.

How to Use Arizona River Rock in your Landscape

In today’s landscape tip video, we explore Arizona River Rock.

River rocks are stunning with their smooth surfaces and versatility, as they can be used in various landscape installations, adding beauty and functionality.

They are especially great for pathways and problem areas in your landscape where it is hard to grow grass or plants. River rock is also an excellent choice for narrow or tight spaces in a landscape where you need to create visual appeal but don’t have enough space to grow grass or plants.

At Village Green, we know your landscape is an investment in the future of your home, and we make it a point to take the extra steps to deliver on our mission to grow plants, people, and trust.
