Save Water with Fall Planting Tips from EVMWD

Fall is the perfect time to plant a California friendly garden or make changes that will help you save water! Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) has a few tips to help get you started:

  • Add mulch to your landscaping to retain moisture, control temperature, and grow healthier plants
  • Water lawns deeply and less frequently
  • Water early and avoid watering on windy days
  • Swap water thirsty plants for native, water-wise options
  • Check your irrigation system timers and adjust them for fall temperatures
  • Adjust your sprinklers for more efficient coverage and avoid over spraying
  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean off patios, driveways, and sidewalks
  • Install a drip irrigation system where practical
