Keep Your Grass Green with Irrigation Installation and Repair
Brown patches in the grass can really detract from the overall look of the landscape. Proper irrigation can help keep the entire yard looking fantastic and the grass greener, whether it’s a residential yard, a commercial yard, or any other type of yard. If you need any help with the irrigation for your property, we are ready to help.
Full Irrigation for a Beautiful Lawn
Proper watering helps ensure the grass has enough water so it can thrive. During the dry months of the year, the landscaping can suffer if the grass isn’t watered properly. Home and business owners will want to have a complete irrigation system that is working properly if they want to make sure the yard looks great. If your yard is not as beautiful and green as you would like, call us today for help.
Common Landscaping Issues
Grass can suffer if there is too little water or too much. Watering the right amount throughout the week can help with this, but issues can arise if there is no way to water the yard properly or if there are issues with the sprinkler system or the way the yard drains. Both too little and too much water can lead to dead patches of grass and can cause the yard to look bad.
- Not Enough Water – When the grass is not watered enough during the dry seasons, it will dry out, start to brown, and start to die. At this point, the grass may need to be patched or, if the damage is severe enough, the owner may need to have it replaced.
- Too Much Water – Too much water can also cause serious issues. If there isn’t proper drainage in the yard or a sprinkler is damaged, the excess water can be too much for the grass to deal with. This can be another cause of the grass starting to die off.
Sprinkler System Installations
If the property doesn’t have sprinklers, it may be a good idea to have them installed throughout the landscaping. This creates an easy way to water the entire yard at one time and to control the amount of water used. Our technicians can help map out a plan for the new irrigation system and have everything installed and working properly. We can make sure every part of the yard is set up to be watered properly to reduce the chance of any damage to the grass.
Sprinkler Control Systems
The sprinkler controller, also known as the timer, is a crucial component of the overall sprinkler system. The controller determines which sprinklers turn on and how long they run before moving to the next zone. The entire landscape can be split into different zones, depending on what you need. This is installed at the same time as the rest of the system, and our technicians can show you how to use it.
If you already have an irrigation system in place, but the controller is no longer working properly, we can replace it. We have some of the top models available today, so you get better control over the water and can ensure your grass is watered properly throughout the year. Ask us about the different options available to upgrade or replace your controller.
Though the controller can be set to handle everything automatically, it’s a good idea to check the individual sprinklers occasionally to ensure they’re working properly. Common issues include not popping up, not spraying water, or being damaged and no longer spraying the water correctly. One of the most common issues is the sprinkler heads being damaged because it was run over with a vehicle or lawnmower. Issues with them could lead to areas where the grass doesn’t get enough water or where it ends up flooded. We can fix any of these issues as soon as they’re noticed, so the grass doesn’t suffer.
While a proper system to water the yard is needed to ensure the grass gets enough water, drainage is crucial as well. A yard that doesn’t drain properly is going to suffer from puddling, which could lead to dead grass. The grass simply can’t survive if it’s underwater. If the yard isn’t draining properly, we can install drains to help control the flow of water. This can be done for any size yard to ensure water isn’t puddling and to help avoid bigger issues during periods of high rain.
If there is already a drainage system in the yard, it may need to be maintained. Depending on the original system installed, there could be pipes that get clogged periodically. If the clogs aren’t removed, the drains will not function, and water will start to puddle again. We can take a look at the system to determine if any repairs are needed. If so, we can have them repaired quickly so the yard will continue to drain properly.
Once everything is set up, the next step is to make sure the grass is getting enough water. Proper watering is a little more complex than just turning the irrigation system on and off. It’s important to understand the slope of the yard and whether the water is actually soaking into the ground or if it’s simply running off because of the slope and being wasted. After your system is installed or updated, we can review how everything works and suggest a watering schedule designed for your yard. With our help, you’ll be able to keep the yard in great shape throughout the year and save water.
If your grass is suffering from dead spots, make sure you look into getting or repairing the sprinkler system and check to see if the yard is draining properly. Our technicians are ready to help you solve any landscaping issues you might have and can help you get the watering set up to make the grass greener without wasting any water. We work on just about any yard, including residential or commercial properties. Call us today to learn more or to schedule a time for us to look at your yard.
