Back in August, just after the historic floods, Louisiana officials expressed concern that proposed federal and state disaster recovery funds might not be enough.

In addition to the flooding damage done to our homes, landscapes have also been impacted. Flooding primarily impacts landscape plants by saturating the soil. Plant roots obtain the oxygen they need from the air spaces in the soil. When these spaces are filled with water for an extended period, the roots are deprived of the oxygen they need and they may drown.
