Lawn watering regulations for the summer take effect today.
Now that the sun is out people are enjoying their backyards but the city of Vancouver wants you to conserve water when it comes to your lawns.
According to the city website, a healthy lawn only needs to be watered one hour per week or even less if it rains.
Newly-planted lawns are exempt from the regulations but you still need to obtain a permit from your municipality to avoid consequences.
Even numbered residential properties can water lawns between 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and odd numbered addresses can water lawns between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
