So I saw this question and my initial reaction was

B.

The correct idiom from memory is

Not only ....but also.

This helped me cross off A and C.

E was wordy so that baby was gone. I was left with B and D. And to me B sounded right.

When I saw your answer I looked back and instantly saw why D is right.

Managing your irrigation system well and watering your grass

That made it plural.

IMO D,

Firstly, check the idiom- Not only ...But Also.Hence A & C are out.
Secondly, "Managing your irrigation system well and watering your grass wisely" requires plural verb save ,help.
