You may be glad for the mild winter weather the Greater Kansas City area is having, but don’t be too quick to jump for joy. The dry conditions of this winter season has left our soil quite parched for a drink of water. It is not as easy to spot a winter drought like a summer drought, because you have to dig down under the top soil to reveal the dry soil and roots.
This brings us to the importance of winter watering. When there has not been significant rain or snowfall, watering your landscape and garden plants are key in keeping them healthy and alive throughout the season. You want to make sure your lawns that were seeded or sodded over the last few months also have a steady supply of water. Make sure you water deeply in order to soak the upper 6 to 8 inches of the soil.
Any questions about whether your landscape is getting enough water this winter? Give us a call! 913-888-2400
