We decided to cut way back on our watering. The grass looked healthy and we’ve got some great flowers in front of the house, but because it’s been such a moist season, our basement floor is having issues (the floating floor is curling up). That said, I wasn’t willing to stop watering altogether. I did 20-minutes per side just now and was careful to not let the sprinkler hit the side of the house or the window well for the basement. Ug. Eventually I’m going to have to regrade the yard. If it’s not one thing it’s another.
Due to rain of late I’ve not had to water much. However, it didn’t really rain yesterday and it is not likely to rain for the remainder of the work week so I decided to do some watering this morning. 20-minutes per side. I’ve decided that next spring I’m going to plant a real vegetable garden. I stumbled on a site yesterday that had some simple and straightforward information that I thought I’d include here.
After yesterday’s mow I decided to do some watering. 20-minutes per side.
Did the mowing this morning–front and back. Also pulled some weeds. Fortunately, the weed barrier out back is keeping the weeds away. A few grew just outside the barrier so I pulled those but no more forest of weeds!
Because it rained a number of times earlier this week I didn’t have to water until now. However, it didn’t rain yesterday and will likely not rain today and it is supposed to warm up so I decided to water this morning. 20-minutes per side.
It drizzled here and there over the weekend but not enough to cover the watering. I should have watered sooner but never got around to it. As a result I may let the sprinklers go a tiny bit over this morning. Back to the routine.
Dana watered again. 20-minutes per side.
While I was in Milwaukee, Dana took care of the watering. It had rained enough that I hadn’t had to water in some time. She did the standard 20-minutes per side.
I went out and did the morning watering this morning. It’s been hot this week. 20-minutes per side.
After all the weekend yard work it was time to water. I got away with not having to water much last week because it rained just about every day. Probably won’t be so lucky this week though. 20 minutes per side.
