Four Common Landscape Irrigation Problems
A landscape irrigation system can provide you with a number of great advantages. At the very least, it will keep you from having to remember to water your garden and landscape. Aside from that, you'll never need to worry about being too busy to remember to water your lawn, and irrigation systems will make caring for your home's landscape much easier and more convenient.
However, when there are any problems with your irrigation system, they can be very problematic.
When you encounter problems with your home's irrigation system, you can always rely on the Prescott lawn maintenance contractors at Guardian Landscape for quality repairs. We can also provide you with regular maintenance services to help you keep your irrigation system functioning as well as possible at all times.
Some of the most common problems that you'll encounter with your irrigation system have very simple solutions, and others are complicated and require professional service. Either way, it's important that you're able to identify them early on. Here are a few of the most common irrigation problems you'll encounter:
Dirt and other tiny debris can make their way into your sprinkler heads, and over time this can cause a lot of trouble. Very little to no water will be able to make its way out of your sprinkler to your landscape, and if it’s not taken care of, that can be a major problem for your Prescott home's lawn.
Fortunately, you can probably unclog sprinklers on your own. Simply find the problem area and then identify which sprinklers are clogged. Remove the spray nozzle, then thoroughly rinse it and its filter until clear. If this doesn't solve the problem, contact our professionals.
If your irrigation system is very large and complicated, then you might lose track of where all of the sprinklers are located. Some of these blocked sprinklers might end up getting obstructed by your landscaping features.
Make sure that trash cans, plants, or other objects aren’t blocking the stream of sprinklers. Plants will often grow in unexpected ways, and you can easily not realize that your Prescott home's landscape is starting to work against your irrigation system. Our professionals can provide you with landscaping maintenance services to help you keep your landscape in order.
Over time, your landscape will change, whether it's through your intervention or just because of natural plant growth. Any time you do make any changes to your landscape, you should keep your irrigation system in mind. You may need to adjust the height or the location of your sprinklers to keep your irrigation system effective.
Nozzles will come loose over time, or you may accidentally tear them off while you're doing yard work. When a nozzle is missing, large quantities of water will pour out of the sprinkler, which can have a negative effect on the rest of your irrigation system.
