Summer is here! July is designated as Smart Irrigation Month since it’s one of the highest water using months of the year.
Less is more when watering your lawn. Watering too much and too often results in shallow roots, weed growth, disease, and fungus. Water long enough to soak down to the root zone, and don’t water again until the soil is dry. A rule of thumb: If the grass springs back when it’s stepped on, it has enough water.
City of Round Rock Water Conservation, Backflow, and Stormwater staff want to help you keep water use (and your bills) low this summer. Come out and visit with us each Wednesday in July to learn smart ways to help save water this summer—and year-round.
