Our Trees are Thirsty
by dmick on September 19th, 2013

Neighbors; I discovered some new (at least to me) details in the Stage 2 Water Restrictions published at this site

http://www.austintexas.gov/department/stage-2-watering-restrictions

Key points:
1. Trees can be watered at any time inside the drip line with a soaker hose. Water can't be allowed to run off of course.
2. Drip irrigation is OK at any time
3. Watering by hand with a hose or container is OK at any time.
4. Irrigation system use is OK from midnight to 5 am and from 7 pm to midnight on your one watering day per week -- Wed. for odd numbered addresses and Thurs. for even numbered addresses.

Thanks for posting this, Dennis!

Mueller trees are running a huge water deficit.

Even if we get lots of rain today, we need to water again TWO WEEKS after the last rainfall.

Here's the "Tree Care in Drought" doc from COA: http://www.austintexas.gov/sites/default/files/files/Watershed/growgreen/treecare.pdf

We've been using the 5 gallon bucket with 1/8" dia. hole method. Working well so far
