Hot. I bet you’ve noticed it’s a wee bit warm here in north central Texas. And who doesn’t love a lovely shade tree on a hot day? Whether you are on the wide open plains of Haslet, tucked into the trees of Trophy Club, or in the hustle and bustle of Keller, your landscape needs attention.
The water table has dropped signficantly. Even well established trees need a drink of water. Young trees, shrubs, and perennials definitely need water. Your sprinkler system may not be getting enough water to your trees.
Get out a garden hose and let it slowly dribble on the trees overnight. A soaker hose can be laid in and around shrubs to get a thirst quenching drink to the roots.
Your landscape is a signficant investment. Don’t let this hot, dry summer steal your trees!
