Watering restrictions remain in place for homes in Sacramento. Homes that use sprinkler systems like the one above may only water their landscaping two days a week, but new plantings are exempt from the rule for the first 21 days. A spokeswoman for the city Utilities Department said the city encourages homeowners to plant now because less water will be needed now than when the weather gets hotter.
