Runion excels at both sales and trails

Walking my dogs around the neighborhood, early in the morning to beat the heat, I’ve noticed residents being mindful of water usage, taking steps to conserve in multiple ways.

Early morning watering schedules are being adhered to – before 9 a.m., for optimal lawn health and water conservation.
