About 2 million acres in the state of Texas are planted to turfgrass. With the increasing water shortages, it is important that homeowners learn to manage this valuable resource and avoid severe restrictions in the future, according to Texas AgriLife Extension Service specialists.
Homeowners can find information in it covering grass types, establishment, lawn care, weed control, insects and diseases.
“Homeowners need to learn to apply only the necessary water, as well as nutrients and pesticides, to their lawn,” said Dr. Brent Bean, AgriLife Extension agronomist and co-author of the book. “Continued water issues could lead to severe restrictions in available water for lawns in the future.”
