DO I NEED TO WATER NOW ?
Normally established ornamental plants and Bermudagrass need little or no irrigation in the winter. However, as Central Texas is in a drought things are a little different this year. A good rule of thumb is to water once per month this time of year. You can allow things to dry out a little more with Bermudagrass or Zoysia grass than with St Augustine grass. If you are still watering once per week or more that is probably more water than is needed this time of year. If you over water you will encourage disease especially in the St Augustine and Zoysia grass lawns.
