Record Rains = No Lawn Watering Required

If you thought last month was a little rainier than usual, it wasn’t your imagination. It was San Antonio’s wettest September ever, putting an end to drought restrictions that started in May.


That’s great news for your landscape. In fact, your lawn probably won’t need watering again until Halloween — or even later if we get more rain in October.

Mother Nature’s gift of green grass can also save you buckets of money on your fall water bills if you do this: turn off your automatic irrigation system. Too much watering is also tough on your lawn and can cause fungal diseases such as Brown Patch.

So be water wise and save some green. Turn off your sprinklers. Your lawn will thank you.
