12/19/2022 (12:40 p.m.) We are fortunate here in Fort Bend County to not suffer from frequent frosts or freezes. However, if the temperatures turn to freezing, it is more economical to protect your landscape in advance than to replace it afterwards. Here is some great information from Texas AgriLife Extension - so you can gather supplies now. 

12/16/2022 (7:28 a.m.) Cold weather is on the way and freezing temperatures are predicted. You may want to take a little time this weekend to make sure you are prepared. Check your supplies to make sure you are ready to protect those pipes and plants.
