A-Affordable Lawn and Tree can help homeowners in the battle to keep lawns green this summer through drought and heat.

San Antonio landscaping company, A-Affordable Lawn and Tree, understands the work that goes into keeping a lawn green and healthy during the hot Texas summers. Many homeowners think that constant watering will help a lawn to stay green and lush in the summer. However, there is a lot more that goes into the maintenance and care of a healthy lawn.

Due to the San Antonio Conservation Ordinance, homeowners have specific times and days that they are able to water their landscaping. Please refer to the San Antonio Water System website for more information: The drought restrictions and ordinance guidelines may change based upon the stage of the aquifer level. Homeowners can find individual fliers for each stage at the SAWS website.

Watering can occur during the early morning and late evening, which is ideal, as it prevents the water from evaporating in the high sun times. The frequency of watering during the week is dictated by the ordinance as well.

Texas A&M University’s AgriLife Water Education Network suggests, “Fewer but heavier lawn watering encourages deeper roots which withstand dry weather better. A deeply watered lawn should be able to go five to eight days between waterings.” This method will help not only conserve water, but keep lawns greener and healthier.

A-Affordable Lawn and Tree can help homeowners to maintain lawns with regular mowing, fertilization, disease diagnosis and treatments, as well as the elimination of weeds. They can also design and install irrigation systems to comply with the water conservation standards and maintain a beautiful landscape. They will design a tailored maintenance program to meet their customers’ individual landscaping needs. Call today for an estimate (210) 263-3954.
