LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE: The rains are
here! The monsoon storms typically bring,
along with wind and lightening, a deluge of
water. The 2021 season has done that in
spades; July 2021 has been the wettest
month on record in Tucson and we are still
two months away from the official end of
the season. This is a welcome relief from
the 2020 “nonsoon” season. This is a good
time to learn about ways to take advantage
of all this water and plan ahead for next
year. The following links will offer you
more information about the monsoon season

with the seasons as well as other links
related to Smartscaping practices; which
was previously mentioned in the Feb.
