Summers Here – Is Your Lawn Sprinkler Ready?

The arrival of summer marks the season of lush lawns and vibrant gardens. But the foundation of any thriving landscape is an effective watering system. Now is the perfect time to ensure your lawn sprinkler system is in tip-top condition to provide your greenery with the hydration it needs during the hotter months. A well-maintained sprinkler system not only conserves water but also saves money by watering efficiently. Here’s how you can check if your lawn sprinkler is summer-ready:

Inspect Your Sprinkler System

Start with a Visual Inspection: Before turning your system on, walk around your property and inspect all the sprinkler heads. Look for any that might be damaged, missing, or obstructed by debris or overgrown grass.

Check the Controller: Make sure the system’s controller (or timer) is functioning correctly. Consider updating the watering schedule to reflect the current weather and watering needs of your lawn and garden.

Run a Test Cycle: Activate each zone of your sprinkler system separately to observe how well the sprinklers cover their intended areas. Keep an eye out for geysers or trickles, both of which indicate problems.

Look for Leaks: During the test cycle, watch for signs of leaking from the sprinkler heads or water pooling on the surface of your lawn, which could signify a leak in the pipes underground.

Troubleshoot Common Issues

If you notice any irregularities during your inspection, here are a few tips:

  • Clogged Nozzles: Clean any debris from clogged nozzles with a small brush or by running water through them.
  • Misaligned Sprinkler Heads: Adjust any heads that are spraying the street, sidewalk, or onto hard surfaces to ensure water goes where it’s needed.
  • Replace Damaged Parts: Swap out any damaged or worn sprinkler heads, valves, or pipes. Consider upgrading to high-efficiency nozzles for better water distribution and savings.

Why Schedule a Professional Inspection?

While the above steps can help you basic maintenance, a professional inspection will catch issues you might overlook. Experts bring a wealth of experience and can offer solutions tailored to your landscape’s unique needs, ensuring your sprinkler system operates at maximum efficiency.

A professional can:

  • Use specialized equipment to detect and repair leaks, even those underground.
  • Fine-tune your system’s settings for optimal watering times and amounts, factoring in the specific needs of your plants and local climate conditions.
  • Provide advice on upgrades or system expansions to meet the evolving needs of your garden or lawn.
