With the exception of a few cold nights and slightly chilly days the past few weeks, Spring has started to finally show its face! The current 10 day outlook forecast is looking good for Middlesex, Mercer. Monmouth and Ocean Counties,New Jersey. That means it’s time to start getting your lawn sprinkler systems in working order.


The grass is growing and dormant lawns and landscapes will be fading away and we’ll back to our typical 6 months or so of beautiful green plants, green lawns, and colorful flowers.


It’s not too early and never too late (until about November) to get your irrigation systems prepared and fully functional to help provide adequate and uniform water to your yard’s landscape. If you are like many people, you are probably planning out new home and yard projects which may include modifications or improvements to your yard. (Don’t we all?)


It’s typical this time of year for people to re-sod or lay new grass. This is a great time of year to do that, but please don’t make the mistake that many people often do: Not thoroughly checking your lawn sprinklers before laying new grass or planting new shrubs! I experience many frantic calls from people freaking out because they just spent hundreds or even thousands of dollars on new grass and/or landscape material and then find out that their sprinkler system is not working properly!


If you are reading this before you’ve planned or started this year’s landscape projects, then kudos to you! Please make sure you are getting your system a check-up and repair irrigation systems that need service prior to ordering and installing new grass, plants, or other landscaping. Either do it yourself or call a professional company, like Elite Lawn Sprinklers, Pools & Spas, to inspect and get your system up to par. Make sure to let your irrigation tech know exactly what type of landscape material you’ll be using and where it will be. You want to make sure that you have proper coverage over the entire area.
