Watering Guidelines

Use of rain sensors helps to prevent watering during or immediately following a rainfall. The best time to water is late night/early morning, finishing before sunrise.

Winds are lightest and temps are coolest, and there is already dew on the ground. This prevents waste and helps reduce the likelihood of disease development.

Deep, infrequent watering is ideal. It encourages a deep, drought-tolerant root system. Shallow, frequent watering creates a shallow root system that is particularly susceptible to drought.

If your lawn requires more, you may need irrigation system repairs or adjustments by a trained professional. ***The best way to determine run time to is have irrigation system evaluated by a professional

Late Fall to Early Spring - Usually we receive at least one good rain event per ten days, and this natural rainfall is usually sufficient for your lawn watering needs at this time of year. If no rain, then no more than one watering per seven days with an irrigation system is adequate.

Spray head: about 6 to 15 mins (*depends on nozzle)

Rotor head: 20 to 40 mins (depends on nozzle)

Spring to Early Summer - Normal rain patterns during this time of year are usually sufficient for your lawn watering needs. However, temperatures are increasing and grass is growing, so the demand for water is higher. When no rain, watering about every four days is recommended.

Spray head: about 6 to 15 mins (*depends on nozzle)

Rotor head: 20 to 40 mins (depends on nozzle)

Summer to Early Fall - Rainfall amounts can vary widely this time of year. Temperatures are at the highest of the year and your lawn needs between 1 to 4 inches of water per week. Supplement rainfall by watering every three days but no more than every other day.

Spray head: about 6 to 15 mins (*depends on nozzle)

Rotor head: 20 to 40 mins (depends on nozzle)

Water Requirements by Grass Type

Bermuda - 1 to 2 inches per week

Centipede - 1 to 2 inches per week

Zoysia - 1 to 3 inches per week

St. Augustine - 2 to 4 inches per week

Garden Weeding

It can be tough, time consuming work to take care of your lawn, especially when it comes to garden weeding. Some people just don't have the time for it and others can't physically do it even if they had plenty of time. In fact, almost twenty percent of all homes are serviced by a professional service.

If your beautiful gardens have become overgrown with weeds, let our professionals help you get them back in shape. Whether it's a flower bed in the front or several massive gardens around your property, we can make sure they stay beautiful all year long.

Spreading Mulch

Like most people, your home is probably the biggest investment you have made in your life and you want to take pride in how it looks. To enhance your curb appeal and feed and protect your flowers and gardens, our professionals suggest spreading mulch several times a year to help trap the water underneath the soil. Organic mulch also provides nutrients for your plants and flowers.

Healthy plants need access to water, so if your mulch beds have deteriorated, let us help take care of spreading mulch. This is a great way to enhance the beauty of your landscape and ensure it thrives.
