Do I need to water my yard? University Park residents now have a convenient way to definitively answer that question. Sponsored by Dallas County Park Cities Municipal Utilities District, the Park Cities are now part of the Water My Yard program. Offered by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, this free online tool helps you determine how much supplemental water is needed to maintain a healthy lawn year-round. Estimates are based on rainfall, temperature, and the type of irrigation system you use. It only takes a few short steps to begin receiving automated emails or text messages with weekly guidance that is based on weather and soil conditions near your home.
More than 50% of landscape water is wasted due to overwatering, inefficient watering practices, and broken or poorly maintained irrigation systems. Water My Yard will help you determine exactly how much to water, conserving water resources for the future and saving you money right now.
