We live in the Southwest desert of Az. We have planted apple trees, strawberries, grapes and red tip photinia. The new growth leaves are yellowing with green vains showing. We fertilized after symptons first started, with miracle grow @ followed up 1 month later with slow release fertilizer. We water by drip system, giving each plant approximately 6-7 gallons of water per week (2 gallons every other day). We have mulched some of the plants and have not mulched others. We've tried cutting back on water, but then the plants seem to want to die.

1 foot. There are numerous variables involved for watering schedules, such as type of soil, how fast or slow it drains, sun and wind exposure at your site, temperature, age and condition of the plants and much more. It?s important to learn the specific needs of your landscape, both for its health and your water bill. Use the information above to determine how moist the soil is before automatically applying more water. I hope this info helps! 1 foot.
