    Water Wisdom

     

    Water Wise Around The Yard

    The greatest waste of water results from applying it too rapidly or too often to lawns and gardens.  Water applied too rapidly is lost as runoff, which may carry polluting fertilizers and pesticides into streams and lakes.  The cycle and soak method is best for reducing runoff and making sure your lawn and garden get the moisture it needs to thrive.  For this method, water is applied in multiple shorter cycles. This allows the water to soak into the soil before running off, promoting deeper roots and healthier plants.

    • Water lawns only when needed.
    • Use native or adapted plants that do well on little water.
    • Mulch plants to hold in moisture and limit weed growth
    • Install efficient irrigation systems.
    • Use drip irrigation systems for bedded plants.
    • Water lawns during the early morning or evening hours.
    • Never water on windy days.
    • Make sure that sprinkler heads are properly adjusted to avoid watering sidewalks and driveways.

    Volunteer Park

    The Keep Midland Beautification Committee rededicated Volunteer Park, located at 900 N. Big Spring Street, on July 17th, 2019. They worked on "refreshing" the park for several months, including a new mural featuring an oil rig, downtown Midland and former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
