Homeowners everywhere need to be aware when it is time to get their sprinkler system checked. In many cases, people who water their lawns improperly are wasting valuable natural resources and potentially damaging their landscape. There is one fatal mistake many homeowners tend to make, and that is turning on their sprinkler system then leaving the house or going inside and not looking to see if the system is working correctly. With temperatures climbing into the 90-degree range and above, you have to make sure that your sprinkler system is working right or those issues will begin to show up in your landscape.
Here are a few things to look for: check to make sure the sprinkler system is not watering the street, because if it is, that means you are wasting water and there could be a part of your lawn that is missing that much needed water. Are all the sprinklers there and working properly? Your sprinklers can get clogged, so make sure the water is spraying out correctly. Do you see any brown spots in the grass?
