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.

A Healthy Lawn Is a Properly Watered Lawn

The WaterMyYard program is a tool to assist you in determining the precise amount of supplemental water that is needed to maintain a healthy lawn. A vibrant green yard might even need less water than you think. If fact, many lawn problems are compounded by over-watering or by applying water at the wrong time.

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.
