Lawn Sprinkler Maintenance 101Here at Laurdane Associates, we understand that you depend on your sprinklers to keep your lawn looking its best, and we want to help you keep them in great condition. In this article, we will go over the basics of lawn sprinkler maintenance and explain what to do to keep your sprinklers in good working order.

  • Clean Your Sprinkler Heads- The first step in lawn sprinkler maintenance is to regularly check the condition of your sprinkler heads and to clean them of any dirt or grime. Over time, your sprinkler heads can become clogged with dirt particles, which will negatively impact their performance. By cleaning the sprinkler heads, you ensure that your system can work properly, and you will keep your lawn healthy and green.
  • Inspect Your Valves- Another step that we recommend you take as part of lawn sprinkler maintenance is inspecting your valves. These components control the flow of water through your irrigation system and direct it where it needs to go, so it’s important to keep them in good condition.
  • Check for Leaks- A third key step in lawn sprinkler maintenance is to keep an eye out for soggy patches in your lawn or for wet spots on your pavement, as these things indicate that you have a leak in the irrigation lines. If you notice these wet patches, inspect your system thoroughly to identify where the leak is, then give us a call to get the repairs that you need.
