Time to prepare your lawn for winter!

In the next few weeks you should fertilize your turf  for the 4th time this season with winterizer  fertilizer.  If you have brown spots at this time look for rabbit droppings in those areas or have your sprinkler system tested for proper coverage.  Soon it will also be time to have your sprinkler system blown out  (aka, sprinkler winterization or sprinkler deactivation) properly before it drops below 32 degrees.  There are some who believe their system is self draining or some who believe they do not need to have their system blown out…However they do not realize that the pipes in the ground still have water in them and that they will expand & contract every time they freeze and thaw causing the pipes to eventually crack and thus causing expensive repairs overtime or the need for a complete new system.  Feel free to call us if you have any questions or comments regarding this process.
