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.

Landscape Design

 

Landscape is to a house what a picture frame is to a good painting. It is perfect for bringing out the best features of your property while hiding the rough edges. A house that doesn’t have good landscape design can look naked and as if it doesn’t belong. Another great thing about a designed landscape is the increased curb appeal – the International Society of Arboriculture has said that a landscaped house can be worth up to eighteen percent higher than its non landscaped neighbour.

The increased liveability of a house that has a landscape design is amazing – creating an outdoor living space can give you the extra room you and your family need. Not only does it look good but landscaping can provide a great deal of personal satisfaction, its when all the elements come together in a visually appealing way that you know for sure that you have achieved successful landscape design.

Sprinkler Winterization and Blowout: What we do!

Winterize your Sprinkler SystemCrack in Backflow Device from Freezing        With the cold weather approaching, it’s time to think about preparing your Sprinkler System for winter. At Total Lawn Care we offer complete sprinkler system maintenance and winterization services. From a broken sprinkler ran over by a vehicle to a break in your sprinkler line, we can fix it!

        It is important to Winterize your Sprinkler System to avoid costly damages done by water expansion during the cold months. When systems are not properly drained, the most common damage is a split copper or ball valve on the back flow preventer. This repair is costly due to the time it takes to replace the copper parts and re-attach them. Poly Pipe that is not winterized will become brittle from the cold and when the water expands it breaks easily. Sprinkler heads with water left in them will also break when the water witin them freezes and expands inside.

        At Total Lawn Care we treat every system with the time necessary to perform a thorough winterization. After the initial hook up with our air compressor, we blow out every zone twice untill only a fine mist of water is evident. Upon the second run through of the system, we will catch any trapped water left in the system. Upon completing the removal of 99% of the water, we will double check the water shut off valve to make sure there is no leakage of the shut off valve.

Landscape Lighting

Adding lights to your landscaping is a great idea to add a little color to your gardens. By simply putting landscaping lights in and around your house you can add security as well as I had talked of wonder, style, and beauty. An Eco friendly approach is to install solar lighting to your yard. Landscape lighting can brighten darker areas of your property and increase the safety of your home by making it easier to see steps and obstacles at night.

There are three main types of landscape lighting used. Accent lighting will cure all attention to a special feature such as a tree, sculpture or waterfall. Pathway lighting is lighting along or around paths on a property. They often cast an outward, downward glow. Mood lighting typically casts a soft warm glow to, often to talk or dine by. Common choices are the wall mounted, string or lantern varieties.
