Three Easy Ways to Use Drainage to Help Water Your Plants

It’s summertime in the desert and it looks like the monsoon season is here!  Now that we’re getting rain, how can use use the rain water rather than having it run off your property into the street?   #1 – One easy way to divert water to your plants is to create drainage swales using river rock.  The water drains off your roof and runs down the river rock to your plants and trees.  All that’s required is digging a trench to direct the water to your plants and adding the rock. #2 – Water harvesting barrels.  Using water harvesting barrels to collect water from your roof to be stored and used later is another easy way to keep water on your property.  This is more costly than just adding swales but can save you money over time in water savings. #3 – Create a water garden.  A small basin lower than the level of the rest of your yard with plants and trees in it that can catch water and hold it in your yard.  Make sure that any excess water does not stand in the basin because  this can encourage mosquito problems.  A water garden can be combined with swales to divert water to the water garden. Remember that July is Smart Irrigation Month.  Using rainwater is a good way to conserve your irrigation water when we get the monsoon rains.  Every little bit helps.  If you’re looking for more ways to save money on your irrigation water bill, contact us at (520) 370-5697 for... read more

Have you heard of the Asian Citrus Psyllid?

Arizona Citrus and the Asian Psyllid There’s a nasty little bug that has made it’s way into Arizona and is causing damage to our citrus trees. It’s the Asian Citrus Psyllid. The Psyllid it’self isn’t such a big deal. It’s what it causes that’s the real problem. It causes citrus greening. This insect is smaller than the tip of a ballpoint pen and has made it’s way across the US. It started out in Florida in 1998 and has come all the way across to California. You’ll find it feeding on leaves and branches of up to 56 types of host plants.  And, it’s such a problem because it make the fruit misshapen and bitter. So, it becomes useless.  Currently, there is no cure for citrus greening and once a tree in infected it typically dies within five years of becoming infected. Look for curling leaves and insect honeydew (a sweet sticky substance) from the psyllid. Check your citrus trees every month for signs of the psyllid. Here are some tips from the Arizona Dept. of Agriculture about protecting our state’s citrus trees. WHAT TO DO WHAT NOT TO DO Buy citrus locally Ship or carry uncertified* citrus fruit, leaves, or plants into Arizona Buy citrus plants from reputably nursery Purchase uncertified* citrus fruit, leaves or plants from another state or online Share citrus with friends, family and neighbors locally Bring citrus fruit, leaves or plants with you from other states or countries as you travel Fertilize trees and watch for signs and symptoms of psyllid infestation or citrus greening Graft citrus budwood or clippings from sources that aren’t free... read more

Mosquitoes and Your Landscaping

Monsoon rains and our warm desert heat equals a breeding ground for mosquitoes. So, how do you stay safe and help keep them away from your outdoor areas? Here are some tips to protect yourself, your family and your pets. Always protect yourself. The less skin that you’re showing the better off you are. Wear pants, socks and shoes, a long-sleeved shirt, hat and gloves. Use DEET-based bug repellant and spray it on your clothes. You can even buy clothes that have bug repellant embedded in them. If you want a natural repellant, you can use citric oil. This comes in wipes that can be applied to your skin. And, if you want to avoid bug spray altogether, you can wear a Bug Baffler shirt (shown below). Another important element in keeping mosquitoes out of your yard is prevention. This starts with removing any standing water.  Take a walk around your yard and see where there might be water sitting. Examples are: Dog water bowls Gutters Swamp coolers Wading pools Overwatered lawns For ponds and fountains, get a Bacillus thuringensis or BT doughnut. It helps keep mosquitoes away from water and doesn’t hurt birds or fish. Citronella candles and torches are a good way to keep mosquitoes away in the evening. And, there are all-natural granular repellants that can be sprinkled on your lawn and other ground areas to keep mosquitoes away. These are non-toxic and have a pleasant scent. Whatever method you use, remember to be consistent in using it. Stay safe and you’ll enjoy your outdoor areas much more this summer. Call Sonoran Oasis Landscaping at (520)... read more
