The WaterMyYard program 

utilizes local weather data collected by an extensive network of weather stations and rain gauges in sponsored areas.  This information, along with research-based understanding of plant water needs, allows experts to send tailored weekly watering advice for your specific lawn!

FREE CUSTOMIZED WEEKLY WATERING ADVICE 

For those in a sponsored area, weekly watering advise is provided at no cost. The WaterMyYard tool works great to make sure that the water used by your turf is replenished, and the tool provides watering recommendations for the upcoming week. Because it can’t predict future rainfall events, you may still receive a recommendation to run your irrigation system when rain is in the local forecast. If so, consider taking a wait and see approach to let mother nature do the watering for you.

 

Get Started

 

How much should I water my yard?

The WaterMyYard program is a free program offered in many parts of the State of Texas that answers this question. WaterMyYard accesses an extensive network of weather stations and rain gauges in sponsored areas and combines this information with science-based methods to determine how much water your yard needs. Create an account and answer a few questions about your irrigation system, and WaterMyYard will send you weekly watering advice on how long to run your irrigation systems.

Drop the High-Water Bill

WaterMyYard is a science-based tool that helps take the guesswork out of determining when and exactly how much to water. Over-watering contributes to runoff, and broken or poorly maintained irrigation systems can make things even worse. Its not uncommon for up to half of the water applied to a home’s landscape to be wasted, never taken up by the plants. WaterMyYard can help your water bill, while at the same time helping to conserve Texas water resources for the future.

Free Weekly Recommendations

The WaterMyYard tool works great to make sure the water lost by your plants and the soil is replenished, and the tool provides watering recommendations for the upcoming week.  Because it can’t predict future rainfall events, you may still receive a recommendation to run your irrigation system when rain is in the local forecast. If so, consider taking a wait and see approach to let mother nature do the watering for you.
