May showers bring June flowers?

Today we trenched in an irrigation system. The soil is as dry as beach sand. The weather extremes are significant. Global warming, the end of our species? Continue to water your trees and shrubs deeply once or twice per week. Warm season turf (Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede) have already gone back dormant in unirrigated areas. If you don’t mind the look, and you don’t want a large water bill, leave the water off the lawns. They should recover quickly when and if it starts to rain again. Fescue is another matter. Without lots of water almost daily, Fescue is done, toast, don’t light a match! All people should do a rain dance at least daily until further notice.
