Get Gardening for Fall!

Garden NurseryAutumn is the time of year every South Texas gardener looks forward to. The milder temperatures and shorter days make it ideal for planting.

And, the nurseries are bursting with new varieties to help rejuvenate your landscape. An added bonus: WaterSaver Coupons are still available.

Through Oct. 15, SAWS residential customers can get up to four $100 coupons to help replace part of your thirsty lawn with colorful, drought-hardy plants and permeable patio pavers. That’s $400 in savings!

Here’s a few more reasons to get out and garden.

  • Planting trees and shrubs now gives their root systems plenty of time to recover from transplanting and grow new roots.
  • Cooler temperatures reduce overall plant stress.
  • Increased rainfall this time of year reduces watering needs for new plantings.
  • Pesky pests — especially mosquitoes — retreat due to cooler temperatures.

Landscape and Patioscape Coupons must be redeemed by Nov. 15. Successful projects get a bonus $30 mulch coupon. Apply today at
