Jay from Harper’s Nursery & Landscaping Company is here to take your questions!

  • Before we get to the tip, Jay & Rosie give us an update on their water reduction pact they started over the summer. Did they get to a 10 percent reduction!?!?
  • Remember to adjust your irrigation system over winter. This is a huge waste of water every winter and Jay talks through all the things you can use to reduce waster waste.

Tip of the Week: If you have frost damage, leave it alone. It will protect the plant from even further damage.

Text from a Listener:

  • Mike – How often should a burmuda lawn be watered during the winter season?

Recommendation – Sometimes never, but if it gets too dry, go with once a month.


  • Nancy – She planted 5 mesquite trees about a year ago. One was damaged and isn’t growing as quickly now. Should she pull that one tree out and start over or keep treating it?

Recommendation – It might be a good idea, but she could fertilize it and treat it, but it’s hard to know without looking at it. It could simply be genetics or the soils.
