When was the last time your irrigation system had a checkup? Are those pipes leaking? Are your sprinkler heads pointed in the wrong direction? These landscape and irrigation programs, guidelines, tips — and rebates — will help turn your yard into a lush, landscaped wonder.

Water Restrictions

In Miami-Dade County, watering outdoors is not allowed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

Residents and businesses with odd-numbered street addresses can water on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Those with even-numbered addresses can water on Thursdays and Sundays.

Landscape Irrigation Evaluations

Individual homeowners, as well as homeowner and condominium associations, can have their landscapes evaluated in order to improve their property's water efficiency. In turn, valuable rebates are available to eligible residents for retrofit work completed after an evaluation.
