Re: southern drought

Unfortunately, while the governor understands the blow to the economy that the watering restrictions is causing, the reality is that Lake Lanier, the major reservoir for the area, and the source of water for downstream navigation, is still down 19 feet.

The talk Thursday was that people could go on-line and take a short course in water-smart landscaping, and then be allowed to have some limited water use. After Stooksbury's forecast yesterday, Dr. Couch's comments today didn't sound like that would be a possibility.

BTW, the figures are wrong. over 35,000 landscapers are out of work, not 14,000. The Green Industry folks send polls regularly, and the numbers are increasing daily. I haven't had one call for a design since we went to level 4 (no watering allowed) 5 months ago. I have one garden coaching job coming up in 3 weeks - mostly to teach the homeowner how to direct the crew cleaning up years of neglect in her newly acquired landscape.

And according to our climatologist, it's not likely to get better soon.


I just added a hort.net top story minutes before reading your link.

  "Georgians may soon be allowed to water their dead plants."
