When do my trees & shrubs need water?
A good rule of thumb is to water every 20-30 days in the fall and winter when the temperature is above 40 degrees, and there has not been a recent rain or snowfall.
Before watering, check the moisture level of your soil using this simple test. Grab a screwdriver and insert it about two inches into the soil. The soil that you dig up should be damp or moist. If it's soggy, you'll want to let the soil dry out before watering. If it's dry, someone is thirsty! Proceed...
