Is your irrigation system killing your palm?

Irrigation systems are often set up when there is a very basic landscape in place. Frequently homeowners will install a palm later and if the irrigation system is watering their palm, then they are good. Many times, what is not taken into account, is, if the sprinkler head is hitting the palm trunk directly and […]
