Watering your Foundation

Water your foundation during drought

The serious drought during the last two summers affected our lives in many ways.
We all tried our best to keep our grass green, or at least hoped the roots are still alive so they would come back next year.. We watered trees and bushes of course.
But did you remember to water your foudation??
We have been seeing properties with cracked soil/ground around their foundations.
If it already had happened, you can fill the cracked ground with top soil to amend the existing clay soil.  Start watering around your foundation to keep moisture.  Automatic sprinkler systems make your job easier, but you can manually hose around foundation.
Lastly, believe it or not, we are still in Stage 2 restriction in Austin….

Hope this summer will be easier for Austin!
