Take the guess work out of watering with Water My Yard

Deciding when and how much to water your lawn during the winter season can be challenging.  Residents now have a quick and definitive way to answer those questions.  Sponsored by the Dallas County Park Cities Municipal Utilities District, the Park Cities are 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. 

Learn more about the Water My Yard program.  After a few short online steps you will be set to receive automated emails or text-messages with weekly guidance that is based on weather and soil conditions here in the Park Cities.

Twice-a-week watering restrictions remain in effect



A reminder — the City’s twice-a-week water conservation measure is still in effect.  The year-round ordinance is consistent with measures in many other area communities, with outdoor watering days determined by street numbers.
 
  • Even - Residents with addresses ending in an even number can use automatic sprinkler systems on Sundays and Thursdays. 
  • Odd - Addresses ending in an odd number can use automatic sprinkler systems on Saturdays and   Wednesdays. 
  • Buildings or facilities with multiple addresses will water based on their lowest street address number.
Addresses that continue to be in violation will be mailed a formal notice.  A Municipal Court citation will be issued after that.  Learn more about twice-a-week watering and how to keep lawns healthy year-round.
