SC Insider Vol. 17 Issue 01 "The Stagnaros"

Emerald Notes : “Nice try El Nino ….We need more ! “

The winter was going so well, getting a good amount of rainfall here on the coast and fresh powder in the Sierras. We are still above average (in rainfall inches) year to date but I have been looking at the weather report the last week and have seen little or no rain in sight.

As resident and owner of a landscaping business, I am getting a bit paranoid with a little bit of anxiety mixed in.

Even worse, I am seeing temperature forecasts getting near 75 degrees over the couple weeks. 

You might be asking the question, what the hell is wrong with this dumb ass? Who doesn’t like nice weather?

Don’t let company sales people tell you they have a new type of grass that doesn’t require a lot of irrigation because that is complete bullshit.

My response to you is its February, the second wettest month on average here in Santa Cruz County and we need more rain dammit !

Drought conditions have changed the landscape, literally. I remember the days when we had lush turf throughout Santa Cruz County, all year.

Turf consumes a ton of water. Don’t let company sales people tell you they have a new type of grass that doesn’t require a lot of irrigation because that is complete bullshit. Turf that is not irrigated will be brown and die, even the most drought tolerant grasses need to be supplemented with irrigation throughout the dry months.

Locally the landscape is changing, more and more, people are removing their turf and replacing it with plants and rock features. It is the number one way to reduce your water bill and invest in your home’s property value. Water departments are still very generous with rebates and make it a lot more cost effective to complete.

I’m surprised most people have no clue on where and how we get our water.

Who knows ? In twenty years we maybe out laying sod again all over the county. It’s basically up to mother nature and the local Water Utility Districts here in SC County. I’m surprised most people have no clue on where and how we get our water and are also unaware there are four main Water Districts in SC County.

Now you’re asking yourself : Who cares?

We all should. Water rates keep going up every year, in some cases quickly approaching your monthly Comcast Cable bill.
