Excessive Rainfall

Thanks to the start up of our summer rainy season, and the recent arrival of Tropical Storm Debby, our plants are beginning to receive much needed moisture.  However, for those of you who live in low areas or who have compacted soil, don’t be surprised if you see yellowing leaves on some of your plants, including your lawn.  This is due to water filling up the space between soil particles, thereby reducing the amount of oxygen available to the plant roots.  As our soil begins to dry out, this yellowing should disappear.
