The average rainfall in North Texas is 33" a year. If that rain fell evenly throughout the year, there would be little-to-no reason to ever water a yard here.
Unfortunately the bulk of our rain falls in a few months. Municipalities often encourage developers and builders to get that water off residential properties as quickly as possible. Pronto, it is in the Trinity River on the way to the gulf, never to see North Texas again.
Maybe its time for a change!
Maybe its time for a change because it is becoming more expensive to water our yards and keep our pools filled.
Maybe it is time for a change because the use of water is restricted in some communities.
And maybe it is time for a change because water is fast becoming one of our most valuable commodities. This value can only increase.
