Lawn Watering Restrictions (year round): Robbinsdale restricts watering lawns between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. The only exception is for new sod and plants. Watering during these hours generally results in more evaporation than benefit. We want to use the city's resources wisely and therefore this restriction is in place regardless of flood/drought conditions.
