WaterMyYard, an app developed by the College Station, Texas-based Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, has expanded its reach.

The app will now provide irrigation recommendations to residents in Houston and Corpus Christi, Texas, in addition to the cities it has served since 2013 when it was released.

WaterMyYard is a free tool designed to optimize when and how long to run your irrigation system, according to the developers of the app. They estimate water savings from the program statewide are estimated to be 2.7 billion gallons per year, enough to supply 25,274 households. Water conservation equates to a water cost savings of $10.1 million for users or roughly $230 per household.

“Users of the app really like the fact that it takes the guesswork out of irrigating their yards,” says Guy Fipps, AgriLife Extension statewide irrigation specialist in the Texas A&M Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering. “People get all these messages about conservation, but often do not know what to do, and they appreciate the guidance the WaterMyYard app gives them.”

The app is available in the Apple and Google app stores.
