It’s hot! How do you keep your plants alive in this heat? Remember to water early in the morning and in the evening. You might consider adding an extra day in this heat. That being said, we are all trying to conserve water so this might be a good time to consider a water-wise garden. Check out the City of San Diego Water website for rebates. We shared this information about a year ago. We thought now with water conservation on everyone’s mind it might be a good time again.
The City of San Diego offers customers a turf replacement rebate of up to $1.25 per square foot of turf removed and replaced with water wise plant material (max. rebate is $3,000). Here is a link for more information.
We have lots of water-wise plants at North Park Nursery and Mooch Exterior Designs, Inc. to assist with your water-wise design.
