OPENING IRRIGATION SYSTEMS

What is the right time to open your lawn sprinkler and irrigation system in the Spring?
Opening your sprinkler system for the season will depend on the weather conditions in your area and your individual watering needs. As a general rule, the system should not be opened until the threat of freezing temperatures for consecutive 24 hour period has passed. If you are an early planter, we recommend waiting to open your system until after April 15. By planting standards, Mother's Day (the 2nd Sunday in May) is considered to be the safe date to avoid frost damage

While you may not be utilizing your system’s automatic operation fully until June, having a thorough inspection every Spring is a wise practice which protects the investments you have made in your landscape. Every spring, one of our trained technicians will activate your system, inspect and adjust all sprinklerheads, replace any heads that do not rotate or are broken, test your rain sensor, and inspect for leaks, and make recommendations which will help irrigation efficiency
