    How do you guys manage to install new sod with the water restrictions in place?

    I mean over here we can only water 2 times a week either tuesday/thursday, wednesday/friday for odd and even numbered addressess.

    With new sod aren't you suppose to be watering for a week steady or 2 weeks???

    How can you install new sod with water restrictions in place or you just don't?
    :confused: :confused:

    Alpine, check with your municipal hall, you may be able to get an exeption for new landscaping. Last summer we had severe restrictions, only one day per week to irrigate, but any one who had new landscaping installed could write in to the municipal hall and get an exemption. Sorry to hear you guys are already on restrictions. Last year was horrible for us, as 80 % of our work is mowing, and of course no water means no lawns to cut. Hope you guys get some rain, actually we could use some too...

    You apply at city hall for a watering permit. It allows newly sodded or seeded lawns extra water for one month. We currently have one for a location in Coquitlam, it cost $30.
