July Gardening Tips💧 Mulch Benefits 💧
2″-3″ of barkdust or compost will help retain soil moisture by reducing evaporation. This translates into reduced irrigation needs. 💧 Erosion Control 💧
Mulch provides better soil structure, creating conditions for better water absorption. Mulch also slows heavy rains so water has a chance to percolate into the soil. In the summer, mulched soils are less likely to form a crust, allowing for better percolation and less run-off when irrigating. 💧 Watering Schedule 💧
Water deeply 2-3 times per week, rather than daily. Water as early in the morning as you can, when possible. Tip: If you can’t push a 6” screwdriver into your lawn, you’re not watering enough.
💧 Sprinkler Selection 💧

“I came in on a Saturday afternoon. It was cold and drizzly and the gentleman that helped me load was still very courteous and friendly and smiled the entire time! It was a really surprisingly pleasant and cost-effective experience for getting wood! (I didn’t realize your prices were so good!)”

“I have been very pleased with Highway Fuel over the years. I get a lot of soil and compost products as well as pellets in the winter. They delivered 2 truck loads of soil mix to me this morning. Their driver was terrific – he worked with me to get it unloaded in the right place and in a way that took hours off my work to move it around. Competitive prices – great people! Thank you.”
