Installing an irrigation system is only the first step in ensuring a well-maintained and watered lawn and landscape. Our irrigation specialists will manage your system in ways that are not only water-sensitive and environmentally friendly, but also cost effective

System Management 

  • Starting up in the spring to test the system, adjusting through the year and shutting down your sprinkler system at the end of the growing season.

Fall Shut-Down

  • Shutting down and draining your system throughly with the use of pressurized air will help protect against damage to lines, heads and copper backflow assemblies caused by freezing.

  • What: Applications of an anti-desiccant oil on broad-leaf and needled evergreens to reduce moisture loss caused by cold winter winds. This helps your plans survive the winter and is especially important on newer plants or those not sheltered from strong winds.
  • When: Every 45 days during the winter months as weather permits.

Season Wrap-Up

  • What: A flexible service that will do what it takes to get you ready for winter. We can cut back perennials, dispose of annuals, remove soil from planters and store them if necessary. We can store outdoor furniture and remove leaves from lawn and beds if you don’t already have our leaf removal service.
