Property owners with landscaping and gardens are facing significant water bills this season.

Horticulturalist, Donna Cuin, at the Natrona County Agriculture Resource and Learning Center suggests maybe some of us saved money over the last few wet years, but now it’s hot and dry.

With that in mind she urges you not to forget your trees and shrubs.

“I wanna make sure that people are aware of the fact that they need to do additional watering this summer because we’re having a much hotter summer than the last three. And when they water they need to water deeply so the moisture is soaked in to the soil about 12 inches for our tress and shrubs.”

She suggests checking moisture depth with something like a screwdriver and then continue to water to that same depth each time in order to maintain healthy trees and shrubs that can resist disease.

Listen here to the full interview with Horticulturalist Donna Cuin.
