  3. Keep your plants healthy and hydrated with the least amount of water by using our free watering schedule to program your sprinkler timer. The current watering schedule is available at irwd.com/RightScape.
  4. IRWD offers free workshops throughout the year to help customers learn about water-efficient gardening. Visit irwd.com/events to check our current schedule and to sign up for an upcoming workshop.
