Seasonal Irrigation Adjustments to Maintain Plant Health

Whether you’ve lived in the DC metro area for a long time or you are new to the area, you have probably been able to pick up on the importance of residential landscaping and lawn care. A property with lush grass and colorful plants not only increases the curb appeal of a home, but also gives the owner a sense of pride. There are many steps that can be taken to bring the landscape of a home to life and we would like to fill you in on one that just might save your lawn or make it that much more appealing!

Here at Wheat’s Landscape, we are strong believers in the power of watering lawns and plantings. In fact, protecting turf-grass and ornamental plants is the primary reason we offer professional assistance with seasonal sprinkler/irrigation system adjustments. Water is a precious resource, especially in DC, MD, and VA, where the seasons can change very quickly. Thus, we take seasonal adjustments and water usage seriously.

Transitioning of Seasons

The transition from spring to summer, specifically, requires an awareness of water requirements for a home’s landscape and lawn. If an adjustment to a sprinkler is not made to reflect the change in season, there are many detrimental things that could happen to the lawn, such as over or under watering or dry spots. This where our skilled water management team comes in! Each technician is trained to create a schedule within the home’s watering system with the correct number of days and watering times for the present weather conditions.

What’s more, though, is that weather conditions are not the only factors that determine our adjustment decisions. We also have to take into account the type of grass and soil that a property has, as well as the amount of sunlight a property will get throughout the day. Areas that are in heavily shaded spots, for example, do not allow for water to evaporate quickly and, thus, do not need as much water or else there is a risk of overwatering, causing the grass to die. Poor drainage can also be a factor in how the watering schedule is set up. There are many combinations to property conditions that must be taken into account when deciding what actions to take.

One final thing to take into account when scheduling a seasonal adjustments is new seed, sod, or plantings that might be installed. Seeding and sod require specific watering schedules in order to for the new grass to germinate and take root, whereas plantings need a different type of watering. Consequently, a seasonal system adjustment allows for specific settings to be made that will help all of the various landscapes and grasses to bloom properly, bringing the landscape to life in the most beautiful way!
