It’s mid-summer, and this is the time of year when your lawn is most in need of adequate watering. It’s also the time of year when high temperatures and inconsistent rainfall (combined with things like malfunctioning sprinkler heads, stuck valves and an incorrectly programmed controller) can wreak havoc on your lawn. This is true if your lawn is being over-watered or under-watered.
Generally speaking, your lawn needs 1 inch of water per week, either from rainfall or your sprinkler system. Although Mother Nature has been much kinder to us so far this summer in terms of rainfall and mild temperatures compared to the draught conditions of 2012, things can change in a hurry.
That’s why it’s a good idea to schedule a Mid-Summer Irrigation System Check-up, where we will:
Turn on and check your controller and valves to ensure proper operation.
Check and adjust all sprinklers for proper coverage and water distribution.
Re-set your controller to a proper seasonal schedule based on the specific horticultural needs of your property.
Repair any line breaks and broken sprinklers, if needed.
So give us a call to get on our schedule to ensure that your lawn is safe for the rest of the season.
