The District encourages planting of native species. These plants require less water and reduce garden chemicals as they are acclimated to grow in the local environment. Now is a great time to plant native species. Plants have a much easier time acclimating this time of year and let nature do the watering!
See a list of potential species at www.wnps.org, the WA Native Plant Society website.

- Spreading a layer of organic mulch or grass clippings around plants retains moisture and saves water, time and money.
- One faucet dripping every second adds up to five gallons a day. Fix your drips!
