We can even go a step further, and do a thorough water audit. Landscape irrigation auditing is a great tool for lowering your water bills, and maximizing water efficiency. A Sprinkler Audit consists of three main procedures: Initial Site Inspection, Water Measuring, and Irrigation Schedule Adjustment. Each procedure is designed to result in significant water savings, along with making sure the proper amount of irrigation is reaching each individual zone dependent on what type of plant material is getting irrigated. A water audit is performed by laying out catch devices (Often plastic cups are used.) in a grid like pattern throughout the irrigated area. The zone is then turned on, and allowed to run for generally 10 to 15 minutes. The time is recorded, and the water within each cup is measured and recorded. Next we figure out the precipitation rate at which that zone is running. We do this by taking the average amount of water in each cup divided by the number of of cups, multiplied by 60. This gives us a valid “Inches per Hour”, and allows us to see how effectively the system is running. Because different plant material require alternate watering than turf, knowing the Inches per Hour rate will let us know where we can turn down the zones watering to save on water, but still effectively irrigate the zone.

Keep Your Shrubs Looking Beautiful All Season Long!

Shrub trimming should be done twice per season on average after the first round of growth in June/July and late in the season when the shrub is done growing for the season usually around September or October.

Shrub trimming has a number of positive effects for the shrubs 1) by removing dead leaves and branches you make room for new growth. 2) You are able to maintain the desired height and width, or shape if you so desire,  by staying on a regular maintenance schedule with your bushes. This also helps to keep shrubs/trees from growing into the side or roof of your home/garage before it’s too late. With the recent storms we have experienced many homes were damaged unnecessarily by dead limbs.

Lawn Services

While choosing lawn care service, you are likely going to choose any of the two categories. Either, you can hire a company to take care of the ins and outs maintaining your outdoor, or you can want to do yourself. Before doing self-maintenance of your lawn, you must be well aware of all the required information. This mainly includes the appropriate period of mowing the grass. If you mow grass when the sun is extremely hot, then you are applying additional stress on the grass. Even you should not mow right after rain or until the grass is entirely dry. If you cut a wet yard, the grass will get open to all sorts of fungus and disease. This can eventually kill the grass.

You can keep healthy yard by setting frequency of lawn care service. Lawn care companies will come on a regular schedule of once a week. The general rule of thumb for any yard states to cut off not more than one-third of the grass once.

Finally, you must be acknowledged about the proper process of mowing the grass. Here, you need to hire a lawn care service. Professionals are experts to cut the grass properly in order to retain its healthy look.
