  • Region drought hits the Capitol

    During a July 23rd tour, Dept. of Enterprise Services' horticulturist Brent Chapman points out some of the trees and shrubs suffering from the extremely dry conditions which have hit the region this summer. An area hardest hit is the East Capitol Campus where a section failure of the irrigation system had added undue stress to the landscape. Although completely brown, the rye grass lawn covering is expected to survive in its dormant state for the more seasonal and wetter weather to return. He also shares several tips home gardeners can use to keep their plantings alive. Staff video by Steve Bloom
