A ccording to the Garden Helper's .lkOictionary, a micro- climate can be thought of as 'variations Of'the cli- mate within a given area, usually influenced by hills, hollows, structures or proximity to bodies of water,' So what does this mean, and how can it af- fect gardening and land- scape projects around your home? It could mean that it's a lot colder (or warmer) where you live, compared with the next town, or the next street.., or even just 10 feet away from your chosen planting spot. Gardeners should greet this as wonderful news. Once you begin to under- stand some of the intrica- cies of micro-climates, it will allow you to get away with 'daring' experiments with plants that normally would not survive in our climate. For example, there are several citrus trees around town that sur- vived intothe teens dur- ing the chilly ]an. 7 week- end with little damage. Some were planted facing south, up against a tall building which protected them from the north wind, allowing them to benefit from the heat retained in the building's exterior walls. To help readers un- derstand this fascinat- ing subject, here are six micro-climate concepts. 1, URBAN HEAT ISLANDS Buildings, roads and other concrete struc- tures within cities absorb heat all day; they then Ask Amanaa by Amanda Moon release this warmth slowly at night, and raise the 9verage night tem- per~ltures compared to the surrounding outer edgqs of the city. Notice how Camp Mabrys low temps are always several degrees warmer than readings from the airport. Since I live in the Round Rock city.'proper,' I can get away with more tropi- cal plants at my house than ~ny parents; who live sou~ in Buda. 2.
