udging by the June we just went through, watering is likely number one on the July yard and garden care “to do” list! Though many native Colorado plants and drought tolerant ornamentals (sometimes referred to as “xeriscape” plants) can tolerate Colorado’s dry heat, most plants will need regular watering (a good soak at least once per week) in order to keep blooming and producing healthy growth. The lawn requires an average of 1-1.5” of water per week over the growing season. Watering outside the hours of 8 am to 6 pm is ideal for absorption—watering during the heat of the day is a bad way to water plants and a great way to watch your water (and the money you spent on it) evaporate! Ensure all of your watering systems are functioning as intended regularly. Be sure to avoid overwatering areas of the lawn or plants that receive a considerable amount of shade.
In mid-July it is time to pinch back the mums one last time to encourage a full fall bloom. Deadhead spring bulbs to prevent them from wasting energy on seeds. Keep an eye out for Japanese beetles, especially on roses, hydrangeas, and hostas in the landscape, and squash and bean plants in the garden.
