(If you found out the hard way how important it is to have ice melt on hand, let us know. At the end of this season when we come out to winterize your system, we can deliver some for next year.)
But enough about winter! Now it’s time to prepare for warmer weather and growing lawns! Soon we’ll be doing sprinkler system start-ups and have already started booking appointments. We’ll start coming out to homes to do residential start-ups the week of April 20.
Note: The snow pack is delaying start-ups and giving us less time than usual to get irrigation systems up and running in a timely fashion. We expect openings to book up quickly this year, so don’t delay in scheduling your appointment!
The Farmer’s Almanac warned us to expect a colder and snowier winter than usual, and they were right. So we’re taking their forecast for this summer seriously, too. Here’s what they’re saying:
“April and May will be warmer and generally drier than normal. Summer will be hotter and drier than normal, despite a tropical storm threat in early to mid-August. The hottest periods will occur in early June, mid- to late July, and early to mid-August. September and October will be warmer than normal, with near-normal rainfall.”
With a forecast for hot, dry conditions, you’ll need to make sure your irrigation system is in tip-top shape. Call us during the summer for any tune-ups as needed.
Look for more information coming soon about updating your sprinkler controller by adding weather-based sensors to help you save money on your water bill.
