Water your evergreens

We are in the middle of a dry Fall, so I must advise everyone that you water your evergreens well this week!

We are in the middle of a dry Fall, so I must advise everyone that you water your evergreens well this week!

El niño-unseasonably warm fall weather and a warmer than usual winter on the horizon.
Turn on the sprinkler and start watering those evergreens.  Arborvitae, spruce, yews, and boxwood keep photosynthesizing even on the coldest days of winter and they need water now to keep them happy.  Water your lawn too if you plan on an application of Fall Fertilizer in the next couple weeks.  Watering late season can lessen the winter damage that can affect your turf and garden.
