Avoid Wasting Water or Money - Irrigation Tips from Crabapple LandscapExperts

To increase efficiency, Crabapple LandscapExperts suggest you have us overhaul the sprinkler systems on the properties you manage. Never again have the sprinklers konk out or waste water by running during a downpour or when the soil is already soaked. Crabapple will:

Check the timer settings against the water output with the twin goals of saving both water and money

Replace the backup computer battery – for maximum security

Clean all the filters in the irrigation system – to eliminate clogs

Evaluate all pressure regulators

Reposition all sprinkler nozzles to upright and fully functional – including those blocked by foliage growth, broken, tilted, sunken, or facing the wrong direction – to efficiently target lawns, trees and shrubs, color beds or transplants

Check for leaks and breakage along the lines during the sprinkling cycle -- in order to save water

Let Crabapple suggest a renovation or upgrade to the irrigation system in order to increase water savings and decrease wasted water. Crabapple LandscapExperts can add water sensors, evapotranspiration controllers, or soil moisture sensors

Saving both water and money earns big results when reporting to management.
