Yes, you are right. You should be deep watering plant material, starting now. It is also important to continue watering during the fall and winter months so your plants do not die due to lack of water.

Here are three resources that will tell you how much to water and how to water: https://planttalk.colostate.edu/topics/trees-shrubs-vines/1751-fall-winter-watering-drought/ Also,https://planttalk.colostate.edu/topics/lawns/1556-importance-fall-lawn-watering/ and https://planttalk.colostate.edu/topics/trees-shrubs-vines/1706-fall-winter-watering/
