It could be argued that irrigation is the most crucial part of lawn care, and here at Falco Lawn and Sprinklers, we know more about lawn irrigation and the demand for water our grass, gardens, and outdoor landscapes have better than most.

We have been called by many homeowners who looked to make quick work of their lawn sprinkler system start-up, only to end up with a deep puddle and a clean-up job no one would want to mess with. Mismanaged water wrecks havoc on the same grass it was intended to care for; while it may appear to be a simple task to complete on your own, entrusting it to professionals is generally the best move.

Ideally, here are some reasons why you should leave it to our professionals.

Professionals Clean Sprinkler Heads Perfectly

Winters freeze and thaw cycles may have altered your lawn’s surroundings, including the lawn around your sprinkler heads. This can hinder the sprinkler head and block it from being able to spring up correctly. 

When grass obstructs sprinkler heads, it prevents them from effectively watering your lawn and garden. Sprinkler heads are delicate but, when cared for properly, long-lasting – a professional will know what to look for when mitigating obstructions and know how to work around challenges you may not recognize as issues until water begins to accumulate. And a regular cleaning extends their life by reducing premature wear. With the help of our experts, your sprinkler heads will be perfectly cleaned, and everything will function properly.
