It is a common misconception that if you have your sprinkler system winterized that you are done watering until spring starts up. That is false. Just because the sprinkler system has been shut off does not mean your lawn does not still require watering. You may remember that last fall’s was very warm and dry and was followed up with a dry winter that killed trees, shrubs and lawns that had been stressed.
Do not be fooled, snow does not contain adequate moisture for your plants and lawn. You need to plan on watering your trees and shrubs once per month at the least from October until April. And if the weather conditions are a repeat of last year’s, be ready to water your lawn as well.
