Do you need an irrigation repair?
Watering your lawn provides various benefits to your home, including keeping your lawn green, attractive, and healthy for you and your family. However, when the sprinkler system has problems, it could cost you more than money.
A dry and unattractive lawn can cause your family to feel dissatisfied with the home. It can also increase your water bill. To avoid these problems, ensure your sprinkler system is in good condition.
Fortunately, there are some signs that your lawn needs irrigation repair. Here are some to check out.
Deteriorating Grass Quality
The grass may be dry and wilting. Brown patches may start to appear. The color of healthy grass should be medium to dark green, but when it is unhealthy, it may become yellow-green or blue-green. The soil around the affected grass may be dry and hard; in some cases, it may develop small cracks. It may also become muddy or look patchy.
Furthermore, foot traffic might damage the lawn; it will bounce back up when stepped on or stay there. If you notice these conditions, a repair is likely necessary. You should check irrigation systems for malfunctions or leaks, which can help the grass recover faster and have a healthy garden.
Brown Patches and Dead Spots
The first sign is any large dry patches of thick, brown grass in your lawn. An inadequate water supply usually causes these. Another sign is dirty water pooling on the surface of your property with no drainage in sight. It is generally due to a faulty irrigation system, a system configured correctly, or breaks in certain places.
Dead patches of grass are another sign, as well as excessive discoloration or lack of growth. If any symptoms present, it’s essential to get AZ Irrigation and Maintenance to assess the problem and take the necessary steps to fix it.
Wilting Plants and Overgrown Weeds
Wilting plants is a sign that plants are not getting enough water for survival and drying out due to lack of water. Overgrown weeds can be another sign of lack of water because weeds naturally thrive in drier and poorer soils that lack the necessary wetness for cultivating other plants.
When lawns do not respond to watering and appear to suffer from a general lack of moisture, irrigation repair may be necessary.
Increase in Water Usage
If you’re noticing an increase in water usage, it’s a clear sign you need to repair your irrigation system. You may also discover that specific patches of your lawn are drier than others or that certain areas are arid and dead.
In addition to increased water usage and dry patches, you may also notice bald spots in the lawn or circles of yellow and brown grass caused by over-watering or under-watering in certain areas. You can have a lush and healthy lawn with accurate diagnosis and repair of your irrigation system.
