Dang, It’s Still Dry

She'sStillDryAlthough many parts of southern Ontario received a nice long rainfall this weekend….many of those areas received only 6 or 7 mm and not the 15-20 mm our soils were needing.  Where a thick layer of mulch is used in gardens and landscapes, we are finding that underlying soils are still DRY.

A lot of climatologists are predicting a hot summer, with areas such as the southwest projected to receive less than average precipitation.

Irrigation Courses are available to professionals at Landscape Ontario and there are a lot of resources online from the Irrigation Association.
