Beautiful Georgia
Words will never describe the beauty that surrounds us.  I was able to take these pictures on an overcast, misty morning, March 26th and share them with you today.  As I frequently remind the readers of this Blog - "Please take the time to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us all no matter where we live!!!"

Sprinkler System Maintenance

On 8 March I determined that it would be a great day to conduct some much needed Sprinker System Head Maintenance.  The pop ups need to be free of grass and other plants/roots to work most efficiently.  
I cleaned the leaves from the head!

I took a spade and cut a ring about 3 inches
away from the head!

Once I completed the circle I was ready for the next step!

I carefully removed the soil from around the head
do as to not break the water line to the
Sprinkler Head!

Now I have a hole about four inches deep and
ready to back fill with wood chip mulch!!

Once the wood chip mulch was in place
I pressed it down with my hands!!
Now we are ready for the 2015 Lawn and Garden Watering when we do not receive adequate rains!!
