The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office has a great tool for residents looking for guidance on lawn watering called the “Water My Yard” Program. Through this tool, residents can determine how much water their yard needs per week and receive weekly water recommendations. We encourage residents to use this free tool available through Texas A&M AgriLife Extension at https://watermyyard.org/#/Location.
In addition, to maintain your lawn's health, consider the following tips:
- Water deeply and infrequently, promoting deeper root growth.
- Adjust your lawnmower to a higher setting to provide shade for the soil.
- Apply a layer of mulch around plants to retain moisture.
- Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can increase water demand.
