Next Spring: A New/Renewed Sprinkler System and a New Lawn

A professionally installed irrigation system that’s regularly and properly maintained should last you 10 to 30 years. Still, everything mechanical has an expiry date of some kind. You may be able to get by with repairs for a while but there will come a time when a new system is the only way forward.

Signs that you may need a new system rather than a repair:
• You’re constantly repairing leaks

• Corroded piping

• The development of wet or dry spots (likely caused by faulty heads) – especially multiple

• Increased water costs with no apparent explanation

• Increased overall maintenance costs year after year

Irrigation Systems + Lawn Renovation

Fall can be an ideal time to combine irrigation installation with other seasonal work. New perennials and bulbs have to be planted and it’s a favourable time to remedy a thin or poorly growing lawn with new sod. The cooler weather forms the ideal conditions for northern grasses to root; in the absence of the hot sun, moisture tends to stay in the earth longer. Work done in the fall helps to ensure your spring growth is more robust.

While the landscaping is getting attention, it can also a good time to install or renovate an in-ground residential sprinkler system.

Lawn Tips:
• Irrigate lightly right away for good seed-soil contact

• Water once or twice a day in the beginning so that soil remains moist but not sodden

In the spring you’ll enjoy optimal conditions for your new lawn growth along with improved energy efficiency from a modern sprinkler system and/or components.
