DO's and DO NOT's for your yard maintenance:

• Adjust your irrigation systems to run in the early morning to avoid losing most of your water to evaporation.

• Install a good quality rain sensor to avoid wasting water. There are even new sensors available that measure the moisture in the ground.

• Don't over water. One inch per week is enough.

• Don't over fertilize. Yard runoff in Bunker Hill eventually makes its way to Buffalo Bayou. Excess fertilizer in Buffalo Bayou removes oxygen from the water and kills any aquatic life.

• Don't blow or sweep yard debris into the storm inlets or ditches.

 

Again, remember everything ends up in Buffalo Bayou!!

 

We have already started our mosquito spraying (make sure you remove any standing water around your home).  The City sprays twice per week as the normal schedule.
