Colder weather is the cue to ramp down your watering! Irrigate only on an as-needed basis and don’t forget to give your trees a deep watering about once a month. It’s the best way to keep plants healthy as we head into winter. Check out our Fall Watering Recommendations — or sign up for an online “Weather the Drought” class — to learn more! Also, this is a good time to add mulch to all your plants; it will keep their roots insulated from coming cold snaps. Locally produced “Compost del Rio Grande” is available for purchase from the Water Authority’s Soil Amendment Facility.
