Overwatering Leads to Higher Water Bills

For homeowners and communities that use city water to irrigate their properties, over-watering of lawns and landscapes can translate to larger-than-normal water bills. Many people use more water than necessary during the summer months, watering their lawns despite sufficient rainfall. Sprinkler companies across the area help customers reduce their utility bills by making their sprinkler systems more efficient and eco-friendly. People in areas like Boca Raton, Highland Beach and Delray Beach who want to reduce their water usage may want to hire licensed sprinklers boca raton firms to repair problems like broken sprinkler heads and broken sprinkler lines, which can contribute to excess water usage.

Top irrigation delray beach companies will check people’s sprinkler systems, fixing leaks and adjusting heads for problems such as over-spray. These businesses can also suggest improvements and upgrades that will reduce customers’ water usage and improve the performance of their sprinkler systems. Irrigation firms can install rainswitches that prevent sprinkler systems from running when properties have received a certain threshold of rainfall. While adding a rainswitch will reduce unnecessary irrigation, homeowners and communities may also want to explore ideas such as proper head placement and eliminating “mixed” zones. Some sprinkler systems have mixed zones of mist heads and rotors, which provide uneven watering. People may need to run zones longer to put down sufficient water.

Call licensed irrigation businesses across the area to learn more about proper irrigation principles and to schedule a service call to improve the performance and efficiency of your sprinkler system. You may have to wait a week or longer to get an appointment with the best companies, as they tend to stay busy. Qualified and experienced sprinkler professionals can help you reduce how much you water and make the most out of your watering.

Extreme Heat Stressing Lawns Across the Area

Many lawns across our area have suffered from the heat and unusually dry weather.

Summer has come in with a vengeance this year, prompting heat advisories, keeping many people indoors and stressing already-parched lawns and landscapes. The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory yesterday for Palm Beach County and other parts of South Florida.

Spots and areas in people’s yards that do not get irrigation, or not enough irrigation, may have burned up from insufficient watering.   Leading sprinkler companies across the area have stayed busy in recent weeks, responding to people’s requests for assistance. Firms that provide irrigation boca raton services can help resolve coverage issues by replacing or repairing defective sprinklers heads, moving and/or raising heads and adding heads as necessary.

Although recent rains have helped many people’s lawns bounce back, well-maintained and efficient sprinkler systems help people keep their yards looking healthy and green no matter what Mother Nature throws at us. While rains have helped many areas across the region, they have not fallen uniformly. Western communities and locations have received more rainfall than Eastern spots. A high-quality irrigation system provides lawns and plants with the water they need to survive, despite the hot and dry weather conditions. By design, sprinkler systems should supplement natural precipitation and provide plants and lawns with at least the minimum amount of water they need to live. If your lawn and landscaping have suffered during the recent heat and dry weather, your sprinkler system may need repairs or upgrades. Companies that work on sprinklers delray beach have helped many people improve the performance of their irrigation systems and improve the health of their yards.

Top irrigation companies have struggled to keep up with the demand for their services as so many landscapes region-wide have suffered through these weather conditions.
