Irrigation of Lawns


All residents of unincorporated Sarasota County shall follow landscape and irrigation water restrictions.  The restrictions apply to water sources, including wells, ponds, or utility systems used for manual or automated irrigation, except for low-volume irrigation, spot treatment, residential drip lines, and soaker hoses.  


  • Even-numbered addresses (house numbers ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8) may water only on Tuesday.

  • Odd-numbered addresses (house numbers ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9) may water only on Thursday.

  • Sarasota County does not permit irrigation between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on any allowable day ponds in sensor shut-off devices that members active are required for automated irrigations. It is essential to check timers for proper settings after daylight savings and power outages. Rain sensor shut-off devices are still intact and adequately functioning after a storm.
