Can I install sod or seed any time?
The city provides additional sprinkling opportunities for property owners planting new seed or sod in a large area, such as full lots. Small patches should be hand watered. Property owners may use lawn sprinklers for eight hours on the day the sod or seed is placed on the lawn.

For the next 9 days, lawn sprinkling is permitted any time between the hours of 6 a.m. - 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. On the 11th day, property owners must adhere to the general sprinkling regulations.
