Janet Moyer Landscaping Offers California Drought Emergency Advice for Home Gardeners

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/13/14 -- With the official announcement that California is now in a "drought emergency", Janet Moyer Landscaping (JML) in San Francisco is advising its clients and home gardeners on a variety of simple yet efficient ways to reduce water use in the garden. The company specializes in addressing the unique challenges of urban gardens.

"While Governor Brown is calling for voluntary reduction in water use from all Californians, this may become a mandate in the future," says Janet Moyer. "We all want to do our part to conserve, but it can seem daunting, especially with all the measures we've taken over the years to reduce daily water consumption."

She points out some practical ways homeowners can still do this:

1. Choose plants carefully. Natives and arid-climate plants typically require substantially less water to thrive.

2. Remove weeds and unnecessary plant material that compete for water.

3. Use less fertilizer to slow growth and reduce the plants' water requirements

4. Apply adequate mulch (up to 3 inches) to reduce the evaporative effect of wind and sun. Be sure to keep mulch away from the trunk of plants.

5. Use a SMART irrigation controller to minimize excess water use and maintain good health in the garden.

6. Install drip systems that water only areas that need it.

7. Reduce irrigation gently to minimize the effects on plants.

8. Monitor the garden for signs of over-or under-watering.

9. Use shade cloth to protect sensitive plants and move containers to the shade. Use glazed containers and mulch to help retain soil moisture.

10. Utilize specialized polymers to hold water in the soil.

11. Sand decks instead of power washing them.

12. Consider replacing natural lawn with artificial turf. Today's modern turf material is very realistic in appearance and easy to maintain.
