It can be frustrating. The rest of the country is getting more than enough rain, yet, the weather in the Rio Grande Valley is feeling like a barren desert. Your city enforces a water restriction order and you’re not sure if your commercial property will be able to survive. It’s a problem that’s all too common, but we’ve included some tips to help you out.
If you plan on designing a new lawn and weather conditions are not the friendliest, choosing the right landscape could go a long way in keeping your commercial property looking spectacular. Low maintenance grasses such as Bahiagrass, Bermuda grass and Buffalo grass all thrive in South Texas conditions. Their watering needs can be perfect in a water-restricted city.
Cut Back on Fertilizers
Today’s synthetic fertilizers contain high levels of salt and can dehydrate your lawn. Adding compost will help retain water in your turf by improving the soil’s water capacity.
Living in a city with water restrictions can be frustrating, but when you are allowed to water, make sure to give your commercial lawn at least an inch worth. This will allow water to penetrate the soil and root zone of your grass. The best time to feed your commercial lawn is in the early morning. This gives your turf plenty of time to dry out before sundown, which also reduces disease.
