Watering Nixed 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. Year Round

City code prohibits irrigation of lawns and landscape between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily, with exceptions for hand watering and the use of soaker hoses..

City of Arlington’s landscape irrigation program includes permitting, minimum design standards, and inspections for all new and expanded lawn irrigation systems. City ordinance (effective January 1, 2009) requires irrigation permits for new installations and additions of sprinkler heads and/or zone valves to existing irrigation systems. An irrigation permit is not required if you are replacing a sprinkler head with a new sprinkler head in the same location.

The landscape irrigation program is managed through Planning and Development One Start Development Center.
