Thorough Inspection for Sprinkler System Damage
Freezing temperatures, snow shovels, and kids building igloos can wreak havoc on sprinkler systems over the long winter. When things finally thaw, it’s necessary to inspect your sprinkler system to make sure all the parts are working, the pipes are not split or leaking and the sprinkler heads are not damaged. Sprinkler systems have working parts, a motor, a junction box and lots of tubes. Our irrigation specialists will make sure it’s all ready for another hot summer season so your lawn and landscape stay beautiful.

Watering Tips for Sprinkler Systems
Your lawn should receive about one inch of water per week including rainfall and irrigation. Deep, infrequent watering between 2 am and 10 am is best. It is better to water deeply Monday and Thursday than to water a little bit every day. Deep watering will promote deeper root growth and protect your lawn from drying out in the drought season. If you think your lawn may need more watering, look for foot printing and a dark bluish mottling coloration. These are early signs of drought stress.
