Greener, More Efficient Ways to Grow Your Lawn
One of the big mistakes new homeowners make in their lawn maintenance routine is overwatering their grass. When somebody is dealing with an irrigation system for a piece of property for the first time, there seems to be a misconception that as long as the property isn’t visibly flooding, there’s no such thing as overwatering.
To those less experienced with the workings of a home irrigation system, winterization could seem like useless maintenance that lazy sprinkler companies use to make a quick buck in the cold months when business is slow. But winterization is actually one of the most important maintenance processes that your sprinklers need.
If getting a sprinkler system installed on a property were as easy as just putting the thing in the ground and letting the water do its thing, there wouldn’t be a reason for an irrigation company like us to exist. The fact of the matter is that not every property is ready for an irrigation system.
One of the most common questions people have when getting irrigation systems installed for their homes is whether they need an industrial or residential system in order to keep their grass healthy. While it might seem pretty self-explanatory, the issue becomes a bit more complicated when dealing with communities like the East End of Long Island, where the property sizes become significantly larger.
If you’re a complete newbie to the world of irrigation, and making sure that your grass is properly watered, you might not know how your sprinklers actually work. Under the surface of your sprinkler heads are pumps, valves and pipes that bring water from your source out to the dirt under your lawn.
