How to Prepare Your Outdoor Property for the Colder Weather

Many Florida residents have moved here from the north to enjoy the mild winters common for our state. Florida also has a number of residents who spend their winters here and relocate during the hot summer months. Although our area doesn’t experience extremely cold temperatures during the entire fall and winter season, we do have to deal with short stretches of cold weather and occasional winter freezes. It is important to prepare your property and irrigation systems before the cold weather hits. This will help to prevent any damage and the need for extensive and expensive repairs.

Why It’s Important To Switch To Hand Watering

September does not bring a shortage of rain to our area, so you might be wondering why we would recommend hand watering, or watering of any kind for that matter. It is important to remember, especially if you are new to living in Florida, that for much of the summer Florida experiences drought conditions. This is the reason why many counties, such as those we service, have water restrictions. When the rainy season ends, many of our clients still need to water their landscaping to keep it looking beautiful or possibly to bring it back to life.

When To Upgrade Your Irrigation System

Have you recently moved into a new home? The housing market over the past year has been booming, and many families are moving into new homes. Whether moving into a newly built or existing home, there is always a learning curve with becoming acclimated to the home. This is typically seen more often with an existing home, as it can be tricky to determine how old the roof, appliances, and even the irrigation system is and when it might need to be replaced. Things like appliances and a heating system might be easier to determine, where an irrigation system can be a little tricky, especially if using a system is new to you. Even if you have lived in your home for many years, it might be time to get a maintenance check on your irrigation system to ensure that everything is working properly.
