Does Your Sprinkler System Need a Spring Tune-Up? Cumming , GA
Sprinkler system

As we enter further into the days and weeks of spring in Georgia, your lawn will inevitably get thirsty – which means it is time to wake up your irrigation system. Since your sprinklers have been down for winter, they will likely need a tune-up and some extra attention to ensure they can do their job of nourishing and reviving your spring landscape.

Here are some top tune-up tips for your spring irrigation system:

#1 Reset Irrigation Controls
The timer, date, clock and other settings represent your control panel. Make sure these settings are correct for your spring watering schedule. You may also want to replace the back-up battery in the controller and clean the cobwebs off the panel.

#2 Check for Flow Obstructions
Test out your sprinklers. If you see water spraying where it is not supposed to or bubbling to the ground, you need to inspect the sprinkler head for debris that could be blocking water flow. Some sprinkler heads may have become buried under soil and mulch during the winter months.

#3 Inspect Sprinkler Heads and Valves
Inspect your valves, sprinkler heads and nozzles closely. If you see cracks, chips or excessive wear, you’ll need to replace them as soon as possible. Valves are designed to regulate water distribution, if your valves are leaky and your sprinkler heads are damaged, you are at risk for an explosive water bill and damage to your lawn.

#4 Avoid Water Hammer
When turning on the water of your irrigation system for the first time, it is important to do so in a slow and controlled manner. Since the pipes and valves have not been used in several weeks or months, a powerful surge of water (known as “water hammer”) can occur if the water is turned on too fast.

#5 Consider Professional Repair and Maintenance
If irrigation startup and upkeep is not your thing, call the experts at Everlast Lawns and Landscapes, LLC. We offer routine irrigation maintenance, installation and repair at an affordable cost. Don’t deprive your landscape of the proper amount of water it needs to thrive this spring!

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
