Irrigation Systems: What You Need to Know for the Summer, Enterprise, Alabama

Summer is when your irrigation system does its most important work. In the dry weather and heat, it provides much-needed water to your yard, helping your plants thrive. To ensure it does its best work, your system will require special attention during this time. Here, the lawn care experts at Lucky Lawn Service in Enterprise, AL, share their top tips to prepare your system for the summer.

3 Ways to Prepare Your Irrigation System for the Summer

1. Get an Inspection

During the spring and again during the summer, ask your landscaper to run a complete inspection of your system. They’ll turn it on to watch it run, checking the water distribution is efficient and there are no broken sprinkler heads, missed spots, or leaks. An inspection will allow you to find these problems before you end up with dead plants or sky-high water bills.

2. Optimize Water Use

Time your system to water first thing in the morning while the temperatures and the sun are still low. This will prevent you from losing the majority of your water to evaporation before it can reach your plants. Drip irrigation is smart option as well for flower beds to get the water directly to the roots without runoff.

3. Set It, Then Set It Again

You wouldn’t set your thermostat to a certain schedule and keep it there all year long, so why would you do that with your lawn treatment? Your landscaper should be resetting your system to run at various times of day and for differing lengths depending on the current and forecasted weather.

In addition to your irrigation system, your yard will require a lot of other attention during the summer.
