We have had a few drought years in a row here Lisa Von Domek so this is good info for me to share in my market as well.

Good tips for sure.  We don't try and keep the entire lawn grean, just a strip in front of the house.

The heat is so hard on so many parts of the country. I hope you guys get a break and a cool down.

Thanks for sharing Lisa Von Domek. We've recently gotten water company notices about limiting watering in our area as well. Fortunately, the development I live in has wells and in ground sprinklers to make my life easier.

Oh, thank goodness it's been years since we've had restrictions here - it just kills me to watch my grass turn brown when we have them! I need to keep this video for future reference to know how to water it so it doesn't turn brown the next time we're on restriction.

Hope you have a great week ahead, Lisa!

Lisa, good advice, here in Los Angeles where we live, M-W-F is only allowed to water... so such tips are great...Endre

Morning Lisa.

With my wife's sleep pattern, watering in the morning is not going to happen.  She waters her plants and grass in the evening hours.

Hi Lisa... it seems like yesterday that you guys were "suffering" from too much rain... never fun to live with water restrictions.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Realty) over 2 years ago

I wish we could figure out a way to share the water from areas like ours where we have plenty of rain with our neighbors who don't.

Good morning Lisa - this is good information to share.  I hope you see some rain soon in north Texas.

Lisa, we too have water restrictions, but saw lots of rain this week, so had the sprinklers off.

Lisa we have been blessed with a number of rain storms this month, so no water issues here.  People don't seem to appreciate how important water is in their lives until they have to deal with restrictions.

This is great information to share with area residents.

I am thankful for the rain we are expecting in Maryland this evening.

We are not in drought conditions in Oklahoma City for quite some time but we put in conservations retrictions back when we were in drought conditions that are in place still today.
