Know When to Water and When to Wait

Know when to water and when to wait with watermyyard.org

A healthy yard needs less water than you may think. The Water My Yard program has been designed as a tool to assist you in determining an adequate amount of supplemental water that is needed to maintain a healthy lawn.

It only takes a few short steps to begin receiving automated emails or text messages to know how much water your landscape actually requires based on local weather conditions.

Over 50% of landscape water is wasted due to overwatering, inefficient watering practices and broken or poorly maintained irrigation systems. Water My Yard will help you determine exactly how much to water, conserving water resources for the future and saving you money right now.

NEW! Hike & Bike Trails

The Community Park Hike & Bike Trail is a cooperation project between the City of Princeton and Collin County. The project will consist of approximately 1 mile of concrete paved trails winding through the J.M. Caldwell Sr. Community Park at 500 W. College Street, Princeton, TX.  Opening this month, the Community Park Hike & Bike Trail is the first trail to go in as part of the future City parks improvements.  When completed, the Community Park’s trails system will link Princeton neighborhood communities and provide connections to new key City destinations.

By providing access to Downtown Princeton, parks, schools, neighborhoods and other key City destinations, the trail system will establish a network of connections. The system will enable resident outdoor enthusiasts to appreciate all that Princeton and Collin County has to offer.
