July Tips

Shane's Spot: Mind Your Water Usage

We are deep into the summer, which of course means the rainy season is upon us. As rain comes more frequently, make sure your sprinklers are being used appropriately. Too much water may harm your plants and will increase your water bill. A simple solution for this is to buy an inexpensive rain shut-off device. This device will shut off your irrigation system during rains, saving your plants and your wallet!

As always, remember to install your sod green side up!
