Houston, join the Winter Sprinkler Shut-Off!! Turn off your automated sprinkler system from November 1st to February 28th to save water and money.
With shorter days and colder nights, turfgrass goes dormant during the winter. Dormant grass requires almost no supplemental irrigation since typical winter rainfall patterns are usually more than sufficient for your lawn’s needs. Turning off irrigation systems helps conserve water and can help protect the system from damaging winter conditions
