Maintain Your Beltsville MD Irrigation Systems

Making sure your Beltsville Maryland irrigation system is leak-free and operating efficiently will help avoid water waste and save on your monthly water bill.

Here are some tips to help keep your Beltsville MD irrigation system in top shape.

  • Test sprinklers and spray heads to ensure they work properly and the spray direction is correct.
  • Fix leaks, drips cracked, and broken equipment.
  • Be sure sprinklers are directed toward the lawn - not paved surfaces.
  • Use irrigation timers on a sensible schedule to avoid excessive watering.

In general, turf grasses need about 3/4" - 1" of water per week to maintain green color and active growth. However, during the summer when high temperatures are normal and regular, you should allow lawns to naturally slow down in growth during those extreme conditions. The lawn may go almost completely dormant in hot weather.

They did a retaining wall. It's perfect. They showed up when they said they were going to and finished the job up nicely. I hadn't worked with them before...I have some jobs in the works, and I plan on reusing them...I would call on them again...
