Irrigation Repairs & Installation

Spring: Irrigation Open
It’s important your irrigation system is functioning and set correctly. Proper watering saves both time and water, at the same time giving you a better looking lawn.

Mid-Summer Check and BFV Check
During the hot months of summer, an irrigation system can make a big difference in the look and health of your grass. Connecticut’s summers can sometimes be very dry which can put plenty of stress on your lawn.

Late Fall Irrigation Close
Before the ground freezes, it’s important to shut down your irrigation system and make sure it’s ready for winter.
