Time for a sprinkler checkup

By
Real Estate Agent with Gold Key Real Estate

The Treasure Valley is an arid climate.   If you do not put water on plants you have sagebrush and cheat  grass.   This was hammered into me when I was house-hunting in 1991.  We saw 6 houses, 3 of which had dead lawns.  We were new and looking for our first home. 

 

Many of us have sprinkler systems.  They are wonderful.  They save so much time and effort.  In April and May you set up your sprinklers and check the heads.  Or if you are like me  you hire it out.  I not only sell homes but I manage some rentals and am a landlord.  

 

At the end of the watering year you have your sprinklers blown out.   The rest of the time we tend to ignore them.

 

In July everyone should take a good look at the grass and make sure the system isn't missing any areas.  Also run the sprinklers through the cycles and make sure your heads are working correctly.  Check for puddles (an sign that you might have a broken pipe). expensive water bills and/or dead spots in your lawn.  If you are on a pressurized irrigation system you need to also check for clogged heads. If you find a problem either fix it yourself or call your sprinler repair specialist.  I have a couple who fix them relatively inexpensively.   This prevents

expensive water bills and/or dead spots in your lawn.  If you are on a pressurized irrigation system you need to also check for clogged heads.
