Keeping your Irrigation System Healthy

Spring has sprung, your lawn looks lush and green and beautiful, your plants and flowers are thriving, and you've been savvy enough to have an irrigation system installed to ensure that your investment stays healthy through the drier months.   So far, so good, but it’s important to remember that the most critical step is now ensuring that your irrigation system works as it should.  Once installed, it is tempting to forget about it, but the possibility that it isn't working efficiently is a risk you don't want to take when you've invested the time and money to make your garden beautiful. A malfunctioning irrigation system can quickly create more issues instead of solve them, and it involves a lot more than simply repairing obvious problems, such as broken pipes or sprinkler heads.  There are variables that can be hard to account for unless you have an expert on your side.   Things to consider:   Overwatering can be just as damaging as "under"watering, and only a maintenance professional can make sure you're not doing either.   An expert can adjust your system based on features of your landscape such as slopes (prevent run-off), amount of shade, location of bushes/trees and other obstacles that might impact water coverage. The wrong sprinkler head can end up watering your sidewalk or your neighbor's property.  Different sprinkler heads are available to water as much or as little square footage as needed.  Trust your maintenance expert to be able to optimize coverage. Routine inspections of your irrigation system are imperative to maximum system performance. Inspections will identify clogged heads, broken water lines and other issues that can wreak havoc on your landscape and cause your water bill to soar. Irrigation maintenance services
