Keeping the Great Outdoors Great

It's where kids romp and adults relax, where birds serenade and plants show off their splendor. Just about everyone and everything loves yards and gardens. And pests, unfortunately, are no exception. With these tips and a little time, you can have a yard and garden that are as healthy as they are beautiful.

Water - Don't Over-water

Did you know that over-watering a lawn actually weakens it? It also causes erosion and runoff.

If your lawn could talk
Take cues from your lawn and water on an as-needed basis. Conserve For trees and shrubs conserve water by using soaker hoses or trickle irrigation systems

The best time to water?
In the morning. That way, water won't evaporate too quickly. Plus, watering at night can cause the growth of fungal diseases

Eliminate Standing Water

Speaking of water, are you unwittingly creating breeding grounds for mosquitoes? You may be if you are leaving water in the birdbath or other places. Rule of thumb: Change the water in bird baths, fountains and rain barrels at least weekly and make sure water doesn't accumulate in trash cans and other places after a rainfall. Also, clean your gutters regularly.
