What we’re noticing:

  • It is very dry. We have not had significant rain or anything close to average for weeks.
    • How dry is level three? Lake Minnetonka is down more than a foot. They aren’t letting any water out into Minnehaha Creek… Minnehaha falls is dry now! (picture from Oscar Aquino in Quirky Minnesota Places Facebook group)

What we’re doing:

  1. We’re finishing up our end-of-summer special services such as Mosquito spraying, landscape bed treatments, and aeration and overseeding
  2. We’re also working hard to get our Fall Applications down as much as possible before we have to start dancing around the leaves.

What you can be doing:

  1. Don’t lower you mower deck any more until we get some significant rainfall or we get toward the end of October
  2. Water as much as you can. Crank that irrigation system up and drag that hose out in accordance with our guide.
