Preparing for El Perro (Nino)
Rain, Rain, Rain, my you humans do fret over small things. But if you must know, to be prepared, is to be safe. Take me for example, I always have multiple bones hidden in my domain of a yard. Here are some rain-wise tips for you:
*Look down- Water flow patterns may have changed, remember we have not had much rain in a while. Add 3/4 drain rock to ensure waters flows away from your home. Where water will accumulate, add 3″ of material, bark or rock, to assist water to seep into the earth.
*Look up- Clean your gutters, check to make sure they are securely attached, check the exit point of the gutter (add rock here) or add a water collection barrel. Fix any know current roof repairs.
*Look out – Windows and doorways, add flashing or caulking where needed.
But most of all LOOK! That’s what I do…..Happy digging!
