March 2019 Water Recommendations

Water Recommendations

There is no need to water for the first two weeks in the month of March. The greater Albuquerque area received enough precipitation in the month of February via rain and snow to meet our plants’ water needs!

Plant of the Month

Golden Currant, Ribes aureum

As the seasons begin to change and the signs of Spring appear in the landscape, be on the lookout for a remarkable shrub with small, fragrant yellow flowers: the Golden Currant. A native to New Mexico moisture catchments at elevations from 2,500 to 8,000 feet, this plant is suitable for many Albuquerque landscape situations if sited and cared for properly.

Spring Landscape Cleaning

March is the perfect time to clean up your landscape to prepare for the spring growing season. We’re teaching you the 7 steps to getting your yard ready for Spring!

Spring Irrigation Startup

Turn on your irrigation system after the last chance of freezing temperatures has passed (typically late March in the greater Albuquerque area, but possibly as late as mid-April). This will prevent damage to your irrigation system.
