Winterization & Backflow Wrapping

3 Easy Steps to Protect Your Investment

Here are 3 easy steps to help prevent damage to your system prior to being professionally winterized

  • Does Your Lawn Get Enough Water?
    Your lawn has very specific needs to stay green and healthy and overwatering can be just as damaging as under watering. That’s why an automatic sprinkler system is the best option for maintaining a great-looking lawn. Automatic sprinkler systems are easy and effort-free on your part. At CMS Landscaping, we provide expert irrigation installation and services on all types of systems. If you want an efficient lawn watering system, our trained and experienced technicians can provide you with the best sprinkler system for your space. Here are some FREE tips: How Can I Tell If My Lawn Is Getting Enough Water? • Place a few empty cans in the area being watered and note the amount of water in the cans after 15 minutes. This will tell you the amount of water you are applying. • Leave a can in your yard to measure weekly amounts. • Water in the morning or early afternoon to reduce evaporation. This will allow turf to dry out before the evening coolness. • Prolonged leaf wetness can lead to disease.
  • Spring Irrigation Startup
    In the spring, we can help your lawn flourish with an irrigation start up. Our spring start up services are yearly tune ups for your irrigation system. During a system start up, our technicians will identify and fix issues that are found so your system will run smoothly from the beginning of the season. Some of the key steps we provide during a start up are as follows: Power the system with water Check the backflow valves for any leaks or cracks Run through each zone from the timer. Check each sprinkler head for proper coverage and operation Clean and adjust sprinkler heads as needed Set the timer accordingly
  • Sprinkler Winterization
    Protect your irrigation system during the winter months by calling us to properly drain your sprinkler system. This will ensure that your sprinkler system’s pipes won’t freeze and burst. Find out more about sprinkler system winterization on our backflow wrapping page.
