If you live in Dallas, you may want to reconsider that thirsty St. Augustine grass on your lawn, because starting Monday, you’ll only be able to water your lawn twice a week. Permanently.
Today the Dallas City Council voted in permanent water restrictions for the city, in a move that Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings (as well as the mayors of Fort Worth, Arlington and Irving) asked for recently. Any hose-end sprinklers or automatic systems can only be used twice a week, regardless of drought conditions. The city says you can still water at any time by hand or with a soaker hose to protect home foundations.
