So as West Texas temperatures fire up into the 80’s and 90’s, it is an important time to consider the condition of your front and back yards. And this is especially true for those of us who have sprinkler systems installed in our lawns. We Lubbock sprinkler owners must be extra vigilant.
Why do I say this?
Because if you are anything like me, you can get lazy and just assume that once you have a sprinkler system installed and the timers set, all will be well. The grass is going to get properly watered and will be the most beautiful sort of green without us having to think much about it. That’s why we get these sprinkler systems put in in the first place, right? I’ll admit that I am the worst at this sort of assumption. I don’t check my system for needed sprinkler repairs and as a result, I might be letting parts of my yard to dry out due to broken sprinkler heads. With this potential reality in mind, I decided to research what can be done to keep this from happening to me. But, after some thought (and the realization that I am not very good at fixing things) I determined to see what sprinkler system repair experts exist in my locality. I wanted to see if there were any companies who would do a free estimate.
So, last week I was speaking with the owner of a highly-rated Lubbock sprinkler repair company and he was telling me about how they regularly go out to inspect people’s systems and how they usually find broken sprinkler heads, which have gone unnoticed for a long time. And the problem with this is that when this brokenness is allowed to continue for lengthy periods, parts of the yard start to dry out. And once this drying out happens, it is hard to recover that part of the lawn. I might have a yard with 90% lush greenness but if there is 10% that is dead and yellow because of my inattention to the sprinkler heads, I will definitely be frustrated. Thus, I made another decision to use this company help me take care of some things. Even if upon inspection they don’t find anything wrong, at least I will have gotten ahead of the situation.
Now, I’m certainly not your mama and so I am not telling you what to do and when to do it, but I am just setting off an alarm that might help you save your lawn before it is too late. My recommendation is to call a good sprinkler repair business and have them come out and do an inspection. Find out now, before the weather gets sweltering and your yard starts suffering. Why not, right? Then if something is broken, get the best estimate you can get and roll with the repair. I think you will be glad you did!
Okay. Enough of my commentary and advice. If you do what I suggested above, let me know about your experience. Until then, may we all be greener than ever before.
