That Cold Weather is Coming….Are You Ready?

It’s been a warm October so far, but winter is on its way and it’s time to winterize your irrigation system.  It won’t be long before the temperatures will drop to 32 degrees, at least for a few hours. That’s when things start to freeze, and plastic and metal pipes start to expand and break.

We know It’s Coming, Maybe Sooner than We Think

That’s right, we all know the first hard freeze of the season is coming. We don’t know when, but with the cooler than usual weather throughout the summer, we suspect we might have an early freeze this year.

The good news is that we’ve also had lots of rain this summer, so the ground still has plenty of moisture to support late-blooming gardens, trees and, of course, the grass. The better news is that you can safely winterize your sprinkler system earlier than normal this year. Our equipment is prepped, and we’re ready to schedule appointments for winterization.
