The J. C. Raulston Arboretum at North Carolina State University is truly a magnificent place. If ever you are in the
area it is well worth the trip. Visit the J. C. Raulston ArboretumWWW Site. Even though
some damage was sustained as a result of hurricane Fran the grounds are open and the trip is well worth while.

Whether we like it or not, weather plays a large part in any landscaping project. Knowing when to irrigate or when
to apply fertilizer or pesticides can make the difference in the success or failure of a project. Applying fertilizer
or pesticides before a rain storm may cause runoff. The target area may not receive the needed treatment and the chemicals
may make their way to the watershed. Here's a link to NOAA, the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration WWW Site. We check this site for threat of rain in the Winston-Salem area before
applying chemicals or pesticides to insure successful chemical applications.
