Summer’s here – adjust your sprinklers accordingly

Summer made it's unofficial entrance this weekend. We may cool off, into the 90's, a little bit here and there, but it's not unrealistic to think that 100 out of the next 120 days are going to be above 100 degrees!










 
 

In reality, it's not that big a deal for us people – we've got a/c to keep us comfortable. But our plants, grass, trees, flowers – they're relying on us to give them some protection from the blazing summer sun.

Now would be a great time to adjust your sprinkler timer, so that your lawn is getting enough water. You might also want to check the sprinkler heads to make sure they're working properly and watering the grass. (don't you hate seeing people water the street?!)

Your sprinklers adjusted and ready for summer Realtor,
