THE COST OF NOT WATERING AROUND YOUR HOUSE IN HIGH TEMPERATURES


Not watering your lawn can cause severe foundation issues and can also destroy underground plumbing and PVC pipes. During these types of heat waves, the ground contracts and hardens like concrete, pulling on pipes, PVC, sprinkler systems, and, most importantly, the foundation of your home. Not watering your lawns at least once a week can cause permanent damage to your home, landscaping, and trees. Summer stress ontrees from heat will make them even more vulnerable to winter freeze damage because a lack of water damages the roots. When you don’t water, tree roots go in search of wherever they can find water, in some cases, they break into your pipes and plumbing. Saving on your water bill now can cost you much more down the road. In addition, it will improve the appearance of your property and our neighborhood.

 

Watering days in Dallas are Wednesdays and Saturdays for odd-numbered addresses and Thursdays and Sundays for even-numbered addresses. No watering is permitted from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
