When May I Water my Lawn and Garden?

Water usage spikes during summer months, mostly as a result of lawn watering so it is critical that property owners practice smart lawn irrigation practices during this time. When watering in the summer, remember one inch of water per week, including rainfall, is all your lawn needs to remain healthy. Be sure to follow the City’s odd / even watering schedule (even numbered addresses water on even numbered days and odd on odd). Exemptions allowed are for new sod and seed on landscaping for the first three weeks and for businesses where the use of water is an essential element of their business).
