Busy Busy Busy.

Lawns started turning brown so we have been busy running around taking care of all the coverage issues and broken heads that really get noticed this time of year. How about a tip of the day? Many customers start complaining during a dry month that even though they keep running their sprinklers longer and longer they can’t seem to get enough water into the lawn. Try running a cycle and soak program! If you are running 30 minutes per zone try splitting that in half and running it for 15 minutes in back to back cycles. The soil can only take so much water at once. Once it becomes saturated it starts to run off and then you’re just wasting water. If you run back to back cycles with the run times split in half you are able to give the first cycle a chances to soak in before your cycle around for round 2. Remember… deep less frequent waterings are better than those frequent shallow mistings!

Alright… If you sat through that lecture you’ve deserved a couple videos. We have one up on YouTube of our first rain day in a while. On Facebook we put up a short clip of us messing around on a repair.

Don’t forget… follow us on Twitter for the little 140 character updates in between blogs.
