Keep Your Lawn Looking Its Best!
Keeping a well-maintained landscape and a plush, green lawn makes your business more appealing to clients and customers. You count on your commercial irrigation system to work when it’s needed. To keep your sprinklers in top working condition, however, they require routine irrigation maintenance. There are several steps you should take to keep your lawn looking its best.
- Annual Inspections
Before you start up your sprinkler system in the spring, you must check it carefully. This is the perfect time of year to hire an irrigation specialist to inspect the entire system for broken lines, leaks, and sprinkler heads that are misdirected.
The water management system should also be checked to ensure you aren’t wasting water.
- Monthly Maintenance Checks
In addition to annual inspections, you should check the sprinklers on a monthly basis in the warmer weather. Foot traffic, bicycles, and even animals can cause a lot of damage to sprinkler heads. Look for cracked, missing, or clogged heads. Clean, repair or replace the problems right away.
Your irrigation maintenance plan should also look for sprinkler run-off. If an area of the lawn becomes too saturated, you must adjust the direction of the sprinkler heads. If the heads are not adjusted properly, this can create sprinkler flooding. Once this occurs, excess water may seep into the ground and cause flooding within your building.
If you ever discover flooding inside the premises, contact a water damage repair service as soon as possible to assess the damage and create a water damage remediation plan.
- Additional Considerations
Consider installing water pressure equipment to help regulate your sprinkler system’s water pressure. Some parts of the lawn may also require differing amounts of water. Adjust each zone to meet the needs of that area. A well-maintained lawn depends on a thorough irrigation maintenance system. Following a few simple steps will help keep your landscaping in top shape.
