TexasET Network Landscape Watering Recommendations - "Cougar Austin Redbud"

Last Saturday (4/25),  84 degrees a 10:30am and we knew we were in for a hot one. Rebdud says it was 92 degress, but my smart controller said 93 in the shade. Quite an auspicious end to the month of April. Nice to see some nights in the 50s and cooler weather as least for the next few days.

So, with all the rain from the last 2 weeks, your controllers should be OFF , unless you have some new plantings or new sod. I would hand water or manually run the stations on your controller that need some extra water. Otherwise I would be saving those gallons for the months of June, July , August. Enjoy the cool weather.
