In just a few short weeks, it will be time for businesses throughout North Carolina to fire up their irrigation systems and tend to emerging, spring vegetation. So, ask yourself, “Is my commercial property’s system ready for action?” If you are unsure of the answer, our commercial landscaping team can help you find out. We’ve been taking care of Triad and Triangle businesses’ irrigation system needs for more than 30 years.
As such, we know how important it is to carefully inspect a business’ irrigation system before ever filling the pipes back up with water. Exposed sprinkle heads should be checked first for damage that may have occurred over winter. The controller and weather sensor’s electronics should ideally be tested and cleaned up too. After all, they may have harbored heat-seeking insects or shorted out sometime during fall and winter storms. The list of other areas that will need to be checked out includes, but doesn’t end with the system’s pipes, water intake valves and water pressure levels.
Once the system is turned on, a second inspection should be conducted to ensure that the layout is still capable of handling the property’s water irrigation needs. Sometimes last-minute or upcoming renovations will require the addition of more sprinkler heads. Depending on the situation, they could also signal the need for sprinkle head or pipe relocation. That’s often the case when exterior upgrades to the property’s outbuildings, hardscapes or landscaping are planned. The list of good reasons to consider moving an irrigation system’s components includes, but isn’t limited to avoiding construction related damage, reducing overspray issues and anticipating storm water drainage problems.
