The Efficiency of Irrigation with Trees and Turfgrass

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension / Aggie Turf
Casey Reynolds, Ph.D.
St. Augustinegrass and Zoysiagrass are all examples of Spike/Spicate/Spike-like inflorescences where the flowering bodies are directly attached to the central axis

On this week’s show, Denise, John, and Jan offer tips on how to stay efficient when it comes to the irrigation of trees and turfgrass with useful ways to check the right amount of water is given. Under irrigation is a problem gardeners face when watering their grass and trees, making it difficult for these plants to receive the right amount of water from their installed irrigation system in their yard. Denise will also provide more updates and information on the El Paso County Master Gardeners programs that will be available for anyone to attend.

The Master Gardener Program started its first program within Texas here in El Paso, having over 6,000 Texas Master Gardeners within 112 counties and contributing over 400,000 hours of time and talent to the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Projects will vary as well, such as gardening classrooms at local schools, speaker bureaus, community and demonstration gardens, and information booths at local events. AggieTurf is also a site for Texas turfgrasses, selection & management considerations, pest control, links to Texas A&M AgriLife Extension content, and other useful information.

For more information visit the El Paso County Master Gardner’s website for questions, tips, and upcoming calendar events.
