Did you know?
Turf grass, particularly St. Augustine, naturally goes dormant during winter months and uses all available energy to grow and strengthen the root system, resulting in healthier spring lawns. Lawn watering accounts for up to 80 percent of the water usage by residents of The Woodlands Township during the peak summer months. Turning off automated sprinkler systems over the winter has helped to reduce total water usage significantly over the past five years.
