One of the biggest challenges we face here on the Front Range is the routine failure to water during the winter. The cold weather throws people off into thinking that the landscapes don’t need water during the periods of the year when things are not growing but that is faulty thinking. The soil still needs to be hydrated as a lot of damage occurs year after year as a result of the soil becoming dehydrated. As we improve our soils so that they can hold more water and use it more efficiently and effectively we can save resources. It comes down to this: You can spend a few thousand dollars on repair or you can spend a few hundred on routine watering. Remember, a little water goes a long way and also remember that deep and infrequent is better than shallow and often. Keep it hydrated and you will save a ton of grief in the spring!
