Creative ways to keep your plants looking good

April 20, 2007

Albany - In the grips of this drought, and with a new, tougher watering ban, people are having to be creative to save their lawns and gardens.

In Baker County, Eddie Hopkins' ground is soft, his grass green. He says one secret to keeping your plants looking good, even in times of drought is to put mulch around the bases, because it holds water. He says that's good, especially now that the watering ban has been expanded, and no one is allowed to water their lawns between 10 AM and midnight. Hopkins says, "Keep mulch and when it rains or anything, it will hold water."

Remember, outdoor watering is banned between 10 Am and midnight seven days a week. All watering is banned on Fridays.
