Welcomed thunderstorms last night

Last night in our yard we received over an inch and a half of rain with lots of lightning and thunder. The garden looks refreshed and my woodlands seem more relaxed. We went almost six weeks with no rain. That's stressful here in Florida and many turf lawns were looking brown and dry. Remember if you overwater your landscapes, when we go through drought periods, your lawn will be the first ones to decline. Encourage deeper root systems by watering longer less often. Once or twice a week irrigation to put down 1" - 1.5" water when we receive no rain will get your landscape through April, our driest month.
