What kind of maintenance does a sprinkler systems require?
Maintaining your sprinkler system is important to the growth and longevity of your landscape. In Fairfield County, sprinkler systems need to be winterized each fall. Proper winterization includes flushing the sprinkler lines so they don’t freeze in the winter. In the following spring, your sprinkler system will need to be reactivated. Our experienced service technicians will examine your irrigation system each spring ensuring it is in tip top shape.
How often should I have my sprinkler system checked?
The more frequent you check, the better off you’ll be. While we’d love to stop by and see you every week, we recommend the seasonal maintenance and having it serviced on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Changes in weather affect how frequently you should water and reviewing your watering schedule on a monthly basis helps reduce your water bill and prevent over-watering. One of our customers in Westport, CT told me once, “I make sure to check my sprinkler system once a month. With today’s climate change, adjusting how much I water is the key to keeping my lawn green.”
