Cooler temperatures are a reminder that landscaping is not in need of as much watering and that daylight saving time is coming to an end on Sunday.

Daylight saving time ends 2 a.m. Sunday, which means it’s a good idea to set clocks back an hour before heading to bed on Saturday.

The City of Sacramento also reminds residents to change their watering schedules. The city’s water rules change with the time change. Residents and businesses may water once a week, either on Saturday or Sunday.

William Granger, Department of Utilities Water Conservation Administrator, advises residents to completely turn off sprinklers during the rainy season.

“In cooler, wetter months, the need to water is less.” said Granger. “Running sprinklers once a week will help to ensure that your landscape continue to receive necessary water until the rain arrives. Once the rain arrives, most landscapes will do fine with what Mother Nature provides.”
