    Well, as much as I hate to see it, hang o, because I believe we are gettin more of the same. I think the irrigation co.'s should do rather well, this year.

    Last year July an August were brutal. Never seen so many dried up yards in my life!! The grubs an moles were rampant everywhere, and the clients said no to the grub-X in the spring:rolleyes:

    Gettin alot of calls now......Do you provide grub control? and how do you get rid of moles?

    Its ironic, but drought situations bring out the water rationing, which in turn hurts the industry. When I lived in Texas, we were in such a drought mess, if they caught anyone watering there lawns, they would give em a fine of $50.00, Ouch!! in both pockets!

    There is practically no water here.

    Even number houses are thurs and sun 15 mins a zone.

    Odd are wed and sat. 15 mins a zone

    That is practically useless because it will all evaporate.

    :( :( :mad: :mad: :angry:

    But what about only 15 mins a zone.

    That's not even helping that much.

    Wouldn't watering early evaporate after the sun comes out?

    My dad watered early and within 10 minutes it was dry.

    actually watering very, very early in the morning, like around 6am is the best time to water your lawn
