Desert Dwellers Tip for the Week:

Memorial Day is one of 3 weekends to fertilize your citrus trees (and others too!)  It's a great time for dethatching and aerating your lawn and verify your sprinkler systems are set correctly for the summer heat.

Tips for Fire Prevention from Chris Wellborn:

  • How to prepare you property.  Remove dead wood and debris around your home.
  • New Homes: Choose the right plants, the correct spacing and best setup to help protect your home.
  • Prescott's "Water Conservation Incentive" Program

Ken Lain introduces plants to consider if you live in Northern Arizona:

  • Salvia Flower's are colorful and flame resistant.
  • New Sage "blue marble" are hearty and reseed throughout the yard. (deer don't like them either!)

Caller:

  • Kenny - He picked up treated lumber from a big box store and installed it after being told it was "ground contact" approved. The inspector rejected his work and he wants to know how many grades of pressure treated woods are approved for ground contact?

Recommendation - There aren't any wood treatments that should be used in direct contact with the ground. He's getting bad advice from the store and it should be 12 - 16 inches from the soil.
