HEAVY RAINS ANTICIPATED TO HAVE HEAVY IMPACT ON LAWNS AND GARDENS

Written by Matt Davis on February 22, 2019. Posted in Uncategorized

Heavy rains have led to saturated lawns, which could lead to diseased shrubs and trees come springtime. This is the expectation of Keith Mickler, the UGA Extension Agent for Floyd County, who adds that trees are more prone to fall when the soil is saturated. 

Damage will be assessed when the rain ceases, says Mickler.  He advises the gardening public to take the opportunity, when the skies clear, to fill the low areas of your yard; this is in order to redirect water to avoid future saturation of your landscape. 

Mickler additionally urges lawn and garden enthusiasts to submit a sample to the UGA Extension Office for a soil test.  The cost is $9. The soil sample will be analyzed to determine its health for plant growth this spring. Samples may be taken to his office located at the Floyd County Administration Building on East 4th Avenue.  Call (706) 295-6210 for more information.
