In light of ongoing low public supply water storage in the Tampa Bay area and in keeping with Florida-friendly landscaping principles, the District continues to recommend lawn watering only when necessary. The simplest way to determine if your yard needs water is if your grass blades are folded in half lengthwise on at least one-third of your yard, appear blue-gray, or do not spring back, leaving footprints on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it.
