Springtime is around the corner, and it’s time to prepare your irrigation system for the new season’s climate.
Lawn irrigation is the most important factor for maintaining a healthy, green lawn. By preparing your lawn irrigation system in advance, you can ensure that your lawn remains hydrated and stays in its best condition throughout the spring season.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when caring for your plants and yard, ensuring they are all getting the right nutrients.
Irrigation Tips to Have Your Lawn Looking Pristine
Check for pipe leaks and broken sprinkler heads. Inspect all of your sprinkler heads to make sure that they are in good condition and free of any obstructions. Be sure to also check for leaks or any fractures at the joints. If you notice any issues, take care of them immediately.
Adjust the water pressure. Lawn irrigation systems require optimal water pressure; too much or too little can create problems. To check the pressure, use a water pressure gauge and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that it’s at its ideal level.
Check your lawn sprinklers. Lawn sprinklers are designed to deliver an even distribution of water across your entire lawn area. Walk around your lawn spraying each sprinkler head to make sure the water is evenly distributed. If the coverage is uneven, then adjust the nozzles accordingly.
Clear any debris or obstacles in your lawn. Lawns need unrestricted access to water and air to thrive, so be sure to clear away any debris such as sticks, stones, leaves, and other obstructions that can block the water flow.
Test your lawn irrigation system. After making any necessary adjustments, test the system to make sure it’s running properly and delivering the right amount of water to each area of your lawn.
Consider how often it rains. Unfortunately, overwatering can damage the lifetime of plants and the surrounding ecosystem, which is threatened commonly at the beginning of spring.
How to Keep Your Plants Healthy Through the Spring Season?
Keep an eye on their growth over the coming months. If their progress is not on pace, then your irrigation settings likely need to be adjusted or the mulch and soil ratio may need to be changed.
Also, consider the amount of sunlight and natural nutrients they are getting on a daily basis.
