Set irrigation systems to run for more, but shorter cycles on sloping sites. By letting the system run for a bit and then shut off, you give the ground time to absorb the water, helping to reduce runoff.
This beautiful bloomer opens delicate bell shape flowers with a nostalgic perfume. Typically you’ll only get one flowering from pips (the underground plant parts these plants arise from), but it will scent your entire apartment with a happy aroma. After flowering, grow the leaves for a spot of greenery, then transplant them into a park or friend’s garden for flowers in years to come. Botanical name: Convallaria majalis

From restaurants to retail markets located all throughout the county, options are endless when it comes to fresh oysters, shrimp, crab, flounder, grouper, red snapper and much more.
Update your irrigation system to include a smart sensor that detects local weather conditions, rainfall and soil moisture and adjusts water delivery accordingly. The result is significantly less water waste and healthier plants that are watered only when they need it.
