Can't shake the drought

  Officially in North Texas, we've received about half the rainfall we would normally receive by this time of year. Summer showers have provided some relief from the drought, even some sporadic flooding at times. However, rainfall amounts recorded at DFW International Airport are more than 10 inches below normal.  Our lawns will surely need some water in these dry conditions, but they may not need as much as you think. Be sure to check out the Lawn Whisperer's Facebook page for weekly watering advice and tips on how to save water outdoors.
