Start Fresh With ‘Save Southlake Water’

April is the perfect time to “Start Fresh!” As Southlake prepares to enter into those hot summer months, we have many great ideas planned to help you conserve water along the way.

Weekly Watering Advice

Thanks to the thunderstorms these past few days, Southlake has received plenty of rain that will keep your yard healthy this week. Our recommendation this week is to keep your sprinkler system off. To learn more about where we get this recommendation, check out Save Tarrant Water.

If you do operate your sprinkler system this week, please remember to follow your watering schedule from midnight to 10am or from 6pm to midnight.
