Florida is known as the sunshine state, but we have our fair share of afternoon showers, hurricanes, downpours and all sorts of precipitation. It can be difficult to figure out the correct watering schedule for your property or landscape, over watering can be just as dangerous as under watering. With the help of Baker Commercial Landscape your property can survive the extreme weather of Central Florida.
Over watering can be dangerous for trees and plants. When soil becomes saturated, the space that is normally occupied by air fills with water taking away the oxygen needed for respiration by the roots. Root rot organisms can thrive in wet soil, when tree roots rot or become damaged they can cause the whole tree to die. When a tree dies or is unhealthy, it can become a hazard for workers and clients. Falling limbs and trees are no fun and can lead to expensive repairs avoid this problem with keeping your trees and plants healthy.
Signs of over watering include yellow leaves that start on the lower branches. Green brittle leaves are also a sign of excess water as well as fungus or algae growing on the surface of the soil. Baker can help you maintain a healthy watering scheduling to ensure the proper amount of water.
Weather conditions have a huge impact on irrigation. If it has rained a lot it can be in good to adjust the schedule. Checking the soil is a good way to determine how much hydration is needed.
