Water Lawns Once-a-Week During Winter in Plano

Winter watering frosty grass

Lower temperatures in North Texas generally mean most grasses go dormant and lawns require far less watering. As of November 1, Plano’s 2022-23 Winter Watering Guidelines go into effect. Once-a-week watering is a proactive way to “conserve and protect” the City’s water supply.  

For the winter watering season, November 1 to March 31, you are encouraged to turn automatic sprinkler systems off. During this period, water your lawn based on the last digit of your home’s physical address:

  • Addresses ending with an odd number water on Tuesdays 
  • Addresses ending with an even number water on Thursdays 

Run sprinklers between 10 am and 6 pm on your designated day to reduce the risk of nighttime freezing on sidewalks and roadways. Hand watering is also allowed for two hours between 10 am and 6 pm on any day. 

Get notices about the best time for watering by visiting the Water My Yard website.lawn watering

Follow these guidelines too:  

  • Don't plant cool season grasses. Ryegrass and fescues require extra water during winter.  
  • Avoid excessive water runoff and watering during rain, ice or snow. Runoff is prohibited because it leads to dangerous icing of streets and sidewalks.  
  • Only water if your lawn needs it. Just because it is your day to water doesn't mean you must water.
