It’s important to keep weeds under control, because they can bring insects and plant diseases to your planters. The best way to remove them is by hand. Then, cover the cleaned area with at least 3 inches of mulch. This controls weeds, lowers the soil temperature, and helps maintain moisture to encourage soil life. Over time, the mulch will break down and become part of your soil. With the cooler days and rain coming, please inspect and adjust your irrigation on your property to prevent overwatering and premature damages to trees and plant material.
