Spring is here! And, with spring comes spring cleaning and considerations for your spring and summer landscaping. Your commercial landscaping says a lot about your business and the effort you put into it. That’s why it is so important to keep your lawn lush and green all season long. One of the best ways to do this is with a comprehensive lawn irrigation system. And though irrigation systems for your Minneapolis business make things a whole lot easier, it isn’t a one-and-done thing. It is important you maintain and inspect your irrigation systems on a regular basis. And, at Classic Lawnscape, we are experts at this. We install, maintain and inspect irrigation systems for commercial clients all over the area. That’s why we’d like to give you a rundown of the few key steps you should take to care for your business’ lawn irrigation systems.
Happy spring! Have you had your spring startup yet? This is essential to getting your commercial lawn irrigation geared up for the warmer months. And, it gets your landscaping off to a green and healthy start. After a long winter, your irrigation system could become broken just by turning it on due to water hammer. Water hammer is when a rush of water flows into an empty pipe caused by a surge of air pressure. The result is burst fittings, producing geyser-like water eruptions on your lawn and it can even cause your system to fail.
A spring startup from Classic Lawnscape will properly turn your irrigation systems back on and assess them. We will turn on the main water source and get it charged with water and perform any adjustments to the system’s head heights or spray patterns to allow for optimal plant growth throughout the spring and summer.
There are a variety of points that should be checked to make sure everything runs smoothly. We provide services that run the gamut of what your irrigation system needs, including:
- Install batteries
- Adjust and set controller
- Charge system with water
- Check the rain sensor
- Water pressure testing
- Check each sprinkler hear for proper operation and coverage
- Adjust and clean sprinkler heads
- And more
And, these are just some of the services we can provide for your business’ irrigation systems. So, when you need maintenance of your business’ irrigation systems in Minneapolis, call Classic Lawnscape at 763-780-7231 or Request a Free Estimate.
