Spring in the Air Means Greener Grass
The sleepy days of winter are ending for your lawn. Your grass will start to perk up triggered by spring rains and warmer temperatures. Lawns will start growing again and require weekly lawn mower cuttings. If your grass is healthy, expect it to change to a deeper green color. But regular spring rains are not dependable to deliver the right amount of water for your grass all the time. Hence, you need a fully operational sprinkler system to be used when the rains are not enough.
Spring is the time when your grass will tap the vital soil nutrients. In addition, it is an excellent opportunity to ensure you have proper lawn care with fertilization and pest control. To get help with lawn fertilization and pest control, click on Always Green.
You will need water to sustain the spring growth using these nutrients. Your grass does not care if the water comes from rain or a sprinkler system.
Can you count on your irrigation system to deliver the water coverage needed or does it require sprinkler repair? Find out whether your system has sprinkler repair issues with our Springtime Sprinkler Check-up. Call us (727) 937-7177 or complete our Quick Service Form for our Sprinkler Check-up.
Working Sprinkler Systems
A well-maintained irrigation system delivers water effectively to all areas of the lawn and landscape. If your sprinklers are damaged by lawn mowers or simply leaking due to age, you may be wasting money and water at the same time.
A sprinkler system that is not ready for spring can result in dead grass areas or brown spots. Whether you are enjoying last year’s yard or thinking of re-sodding certain areas, you need to have a sprinkler system ready for spring.
Springtime Sprinkler Check-up
Be sure your automatic sprinkler system is in tip-top condition providing full water coverage efficiently to your lawn, trees, shrubs, plants, and flowers. Your sprinkler system must function like clockwork providing water regularly or least twice a week. The scheduled amount of water will depend on the county watering restrictions and whether your soil can properly absorb the water delivered. A checkup should fully test the operation of the irrigation system for optimum water delivery.
Spring is the perfect time to check your irrigation system for the following issues:
- Incorrect timer control programming
- Broken sprinkler heads
- Leaking sprinklers
- Broken pipes
- Clogged sprinkler filter screens
- Stuck sprinkler zone valves
- Misaligned sprinkler heads or fall below the grass surface
- Incorrectly adjusted sprinkler heads for optimal water
The purpose of the Springtime Sprinkler Check-up is to ensure water is distributed uniformly throughout landscape in the right amount needed. To learn more details about this, click on Landscape Irrigation System Evaluation and Management.
