• Trees are your landscape’s most valuable feature and the most expensive to remove or replace, so correct watering is a priority. Water deeply and infrequently to increase a tree’s drought tolerance. Water for maximum absorption without runoff. Water the entire root zone, which is two to three times larger than the width of the tree branches. Learn more about helping your trees and shrubs survive during drought on the Colorado State Extension website.

• Leaf scorch may begin showing up on leaves of aspen, maple, linden and evergreens. The leaves will look spotted or burned along the leaf margins. The plant simply cannot take up enough water for its needs under harsh summer conditions. Once leaf scorch is present, there is no cure except management including monthly winter watering, and deep, infrequent watering during the growing season. More on leaf scorch at the Colorado State Extention website.

• Wait to fertilize cool-season grasses until late summer.
