As the Advice Man for Lawn Doctor, I was faced with a dilemma during the recent water ban.
If I continued to water the lawn at Lawn Doctor’s Corporate headquarters I would be going against the rules. But if I didn’t my lawn -- and possibly my reputation -- could be damaged.
I know I made the right decision by not watering, in light of the fact I could have put the supply of potable water in jeopardy.
It seems like from the recent Patch poll called "Would You Turn In Your Neighbor?" it was tough for other homeowners as well.
I was surprised to see how many people would call the town on their neighbor if they saw they were watering during the ban.
With the heat continuing to rise I am going to make sure I practice what I preach when it comes to watering my own lawn as well, irrigating a section at a time and raising the mowing height.
I am also going to make sure that I am on the best of terms with all of my neighbors.
