Last month we recommended you shut down your irrigation system. If you haven’t had a chance to do that yet, December is the time. Read how here.

Trees still need to be watered once a month in the winter, meaning you can hand water your trees per the Winter Watering Recommendations. However, due to the recent record snow storm in Albuquerque your trees have received enough water this month so there is no need to water.  

If your landscape gets more than ½” of rain or 6″ of snow during any given winter month (December, January and February) there is no need for supplemental irrigation on that month.
