As we enter the last months of summer, think back. Have you taken good care of your yard this summer? Have you seen dead patches of grass, puddles of water, or not-quite-broken-but-not-quite-right sprinkler heads? Don’t worry, there is still plenty of time for you to get your irrigation system up to snuff before the cool weather hits. Here are three tips to help you improve your residential irrigation maintenance practices and turn your yard into a thing of beauty.
1. Install a Timer
One of the easiest ways to make sure you are watering your lawn consistently is to install an irrigation timer. While the most bare-bones systems merely turn your sprinklers on for a set amount of time on whatever days you choose, some fancier models can do even more for your yard. These so-called smart irrigation controllers can sense rain and adjust their watering schedules and times to account for weather, changes in season, and more. Smart irrigation controllers make residential irrigation maintenance a breeze by eliminating the need to analyze these factors and make adjustments manually.
2. Regularly Inspect Your System
They say that the best offense is a good defense, and this is definitely true for residential irrigation maintenance. Noticing problems before they become severe is one of the best things you can do for your sprinkler system, so it is incredibly helpful to inspect your irrigation system regularly for malfunctions and wear. Pay attention to sprinkler heads, drip emitters, pipes, and tubing. Unusual sprinkler patterns, high-pressure misting, and pools of standing water are all warning signs that something is wrong with your system, so keep your eyes peeled and contact a professional for repair.
