Having the Best Yard on the Block

admin 29 Nov 2018 0 Comments

No matter if you have deep animosity towards your neighbors or nothing but love, you want your lawn to put theirs to shame. It’s a competition that has been ongoing for ages, and especially in Florida where we’re lucky enough to have nice weather year-round, there is no off-season. At Orange Irrigation & Drainage, we’re on your side. Through the comprehensive irrigation and landscape services that we offer in Metro Orlando, we’ll help your lawn be the greener grass on the other side.

To have the most envied lawn on the block requires more than just letting your sprinkler system do its thing (although it doesn’t hurt if you have a modern system installed by us). If that were the case, everyone’s lawn in your neighborhood would look great. So in this blog post, we’ll provide you with a few tips to maintain a healthy lawn as well as some steps you can take to bring your yard to the next level. If you’re in need of any of our services, whether it be installing an entirely new irrigation system, sprinkler repair, drainage services, and more, don’t hesitate to contact us today. You can rely on us for reliable and professional services at an affordable price.

Proper Watering Is Key

This point is obvious, but it needs to be stated. Your lawn is thirsty and requires water, but the right amount! Too little and the grass will dry out, too much and you’ll drown it. If you’re old school and still water your lawn by a hose, no offense, but it’s unlikely that you’re evenly distributing the water which won’t help you achieve the perfect lawn. Consider having us install a new sprinkler system! Through the advancements in technology, modern systems are programmed to know what times to water your lawn, and can even gauge moisture levels so that the sprinklers don’t water the grass after or during a rainstorm.

Maintaining Your Irrigation System

Even if you have a new age irrigation system, things may still go awry. Accidents happen, sprinkler heads get bumped, valves don’t function properly, and more. Just be sure to keep an eye on your grass and it will tell you if something is wrong. In a previous post, we discussed warning signs to look out for that indicate the need of sprinkler repair. These include dead spots, leaks, problems with water pressure, and a sudden increase in your monthly water bill. If you notice any of these, don’t hesitate to contact us before the matters get worse. We’ll be there right away to diagnose the problem and get your system back to where it needs to be.

Fertilize

Your grass is not only thirsty, but it’s also hungry! To really help get the most luscious grass in your neighborhood, you want to feed your grass with the nutrients that it craves. By getting proper fertilizer for your grass, one that is organic and phosphorous-free, your grass will grow thick and lush which will shade the areas that weeds need to grow. Therefore, you’ll achieve a weed-free lawn!

Drainage

If you’ve noticed pooling in your yard, this is not a good sign. For one, it might mean that a sprinkler head is malfunctioning and watering too much of one spot, or it could indicate that you have drainage issues. Don’t worry, there is no landscape drainage issue that we can’t remedy. We’ll ensure that water is being properly directed and drained from your landscape to ensure a healthy lawn.

Landscape Lighting

Want to really take your lawn game up a notch? Consider adding some landscape lighting! As the sun begins to set, and the light fades to dark, your gorgeous yard will be illuminated in a magical glow. No matter what your layout may be, or the size of your landscape, outdoor lighting always helps add some appeal. This not only means that you’ll be able to relax in your yard after-dark, but in case you ever sell your home, landscape lighting really helps boost the value of your property.

You can count on Orange Irrigation & Drainage to help you achieve a healthy, jealousy-inducing lawn through our many landscape services that we provide to the people of Metro Orlando. If you have any questions or are in need of our irrigation services, don’t hesitate to call us today!
