Winterizing Your Irrigation


When it comes to your landscape, falling temperatures mean a decline in lawn maintenance demands. The cooler season of winter is a time for your landscape to rest before the blooms of spring. While you can’t ignore your lawn altogether during the winter, you can back off on several lawn care tasks, including your irrigation. Your irrigation system won’t have to work like it did in the summer months, but you will still need to take steps to protect it during the off-season or the months of freezing temperatures.

How and When to Winterize Your Irrigation System

In general, it’s best to winterize too early then too late. The idea is to avoid freezing water inside your pipes, which can seriously damage your spigots, drains and hoses. To winterize your irrigation, you’ll need to turn off the water, open the drains and let the water drain out accordingly. Irrigation winterization can be performed manually or with an automatic drain valve method. It is important to know which method is best for your unique system.

When preparing your irrigation system for the winter, it is critical that you address any areas of standing water that could be in or around your irrigation components. Even just one hard freeze in Georgia could cause this water to freeze and break your system. Some homeowners take extra precautions by wrapping their spigots to combat unexpected freezing.

Give Your Irrigation Extra Attention Before Spring

As you winterize your irrigation this season, consider taking the extra time to evaluate your system for malfunction. To ensure your irrigation is in top condition when spring arrives, make any necessary repairs or adjustments now.

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.
