During the summer heat the city of Nanaimo enforces watering restrictions that limit residents to watering only twice per week. Those wishing to build a new lawn are handcuffed by legalities leaving lawns looking brown and unhealthy.
Nanaimo has pretty relaxed watering restrictions that are very easy to follow. Please do not water between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm. If the last number on your home is odd then you are allowed to water on the odd days on the calendar. If the last number on your home is even then you are allowed to water on the even dates on the calendar.
