Helpful Tips During Water Restrictions

● When watering, ensure the watering is done in multiple, short cycles with a 30-minute to a one hour break between run cycles to ensure deep penetration of water into soil. This allows for a stronger root system. For more information on how to water: Irrigation Tips
