Yard Of the Month

It being appropriate to give credit where credit is due, the Shoal Creek HOA has established a Yard of the Month award to recognize those homeowners that take an extra interest in making their home landscape top notch.

Yard Of the Month awards typically are from March or April of each year through October.

 

 
The Yard of the Month committee is headed by Kyle Shidler. If you have comments, nominations, gardening tips for the newsletter, or want to help out with Yard of the Month, please contact Kyle Shidler.

From the AgriLife Extension of the Texas A&M System:
Water supply has become a critical issue for Texas's future prosperity. Booming populations have increased demand on the state's already limited supply of high quality water. In addition, seasonal fluctuations in rainfall and periodic droughts have created a feast-or-famine water cycle in Texas.
In urban areas of Texas, about 40-50% of the domestic water supply is used for landscape watering. Much of this water is used to maintain high water demanding landscaping, or it is simply applied inefficiently.
You can help by creating a water-efficient landscape. For additional information, see http://EarthKind.tamu.edu
Water Efficiency Tips:
1. Separate water zones in your landscape and make sure you are not overwatering and don't water after it rains (install a rain sensor if you don't have one already).
2. Don't over saturate plant beds.
3. Be sure to MULCH your landscape beds and gardens - looks better, reduces evaporation, and keeps out unwanted weeds.
