Save on watering by collecting rain water in containers. Pretty tin buckets make cute 'collectors'. If you have a tin roof, you can place barrels under the eaves to catch rain water and then it can be gathered in watering cans to take where needed. In case of mosquitoes, check with garden centers. There is a tablet to rid water of the larvae but safe for plants.
For the larvae, all I do is spray soap water on top of the water - the mosquitoes don't like it and it won't hurt your plants. (05/25/2007)
