Many areas across the country see heavy rains, especially in May and October, the wettest months of the year. Rain is important to irrigate plants, but too much can obviously cause serious problems. In addition to washing away any recent seeding, pesticides and herbicides can be transferred to unintended areas and into the water system. Landscaping can also see negative effects as water chips away at soil and can end up standing over plants if adequate drainage isn’t established. With some precautions and responses, however, you can minimize the damage inflicted on your yard by the heavy rains of Spring.
