Have you heard the joke they tell down in Arizona, the one where the parents are talking about how they’re wishing and wishing for rain “not for themselves because they’ve seen it, but for their 8-yr old?”
Ha, ha. We’re not in quite the same situation here, but we are on the crispy side. If you have had trees planted in the last 5 years, it would be a great idea to water them once a week. Let the hose trickle at a medium flow for 1/2 hour at the base of the tree, and that will get them through this drought period. Shrubs and perennials that are not drought-tolerant could benefit from a weekly drink too–things like roses, hydrangeas, etc. Plants like ornamental grasses, coneflowers, etc, should be fine.
