Prepare for End of Irrigation!
 As we approach the end of the watering season here are a simple steps to get your yard ready for winter before the watering season ends.

1. Apply a fall feeding to the lawn, this will keep the lawn greener later into the winter as well as in the early spring. A few blends include the Fertilome Green Maker and the Fertilome Winterizer. This can be done ahead of rain, however I find it easier to apply while the irrigation systems are still on. It's too late to feed trees, shrubs and perennials; we want these types of plants to harden off for winter.

2.Before the water shuts off deep soak your trees, shrubs and perennials. With sand soils then can be done with a couple of long run times, while with clay soils you'll need several short runs to the same.

3. When does my water shut off?

4. Get your sprinklers blown out before Veteran's Day (Nov 11th), this our rule for the nursery.  Save time and money of having to repair your irrigation system in the spring by either blowing out your sprinkler system or hire someone to do it for you. 

5. Disconnect your hoses from faucets and drain your hoses. By disconnecting hoses from the faucets or hose bib allows them to drain and not lead to a pipe burst as water freezes in cold weather.  Draining hoses allows the hose to be ready to be used when you need to water evergreens and other newly planted plants in winter. To drain hoses uncoil them run them downhill and then roll or coil them up making sure water is draining out as your coil.

6.  Water your evergreens and plants that appreciate a drink.  Here is a list.
