Water Lawns Once-a-Week in Plano During Winter Months

Winter watering frosty grass

Lower temperatures in North Texas prompt grasses to go dormant meaning lawns require far less watering. Plano’s Winter Watering Guidelines are effective November 1 through March 31 with watering only once a week allowed. It’s a proactive way to “conserve and protect” the City’s water supply.  

Plano residents 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 designated watering days 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.

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.
