Winter drought effects can be quite severe, leaving trees and plants highly stressed. Pine needles turn brown and fall off, plant leaves curl up and drop off, and plant roots beneath the frozen ground surface dry out, because they can’t absorb needed moisture from soil.
When the perennial plants above ground stop flourishing and begin to wither during the dormant season of Winter, there’s something extremely vital to plant health that’s happening below the frozen ground surface.
Whether it be freezing winter conditions, torrential spring downpours, or blistering hot summer days, your plants and landscape need irrigation that is fine-tuned specifically to current weather and soil conditions. It’s called smart irrigation.
