What Makes Up Sustainable Landscaping Services?

Soil
When you use sustainable soil, you are investing in the healthy growth of plants. Compacted soil can actually stunt the growth of plants, and can be a culprit of flooding, erosion, and runoff. Good soil aids in absorbing water, which is an essential element in overall sustainability. Since the soil really lays the foundation for the rest of the landscape setting, it’s essential that you use soil with a good chemistry if you are wanting to be mindful of how sustainable you’re being.

Irrigation + Water Conservation
According to Landscaping Network, the number one principle of sustainable landscaping is to “treat water as a resource.” If you are serious about creating your landscape completely sustainably, then your focus should be on how to conserve water. Properly designing an irrigation system involves viewing water as a resource and being mindful of how it is used throughout the landscape. And when you focus on conserving water, then you need for an irrigation system decreases.

Choice Of Sustainable Plants
If you are looking to invest in landscaping services in order to start over on a clean slate, but are wanting to be sustainable, it’s important to understand that taking out all of the plants will not be working toward a sustainable practice. When you choose to strip your yard of all the existing plants in order to start fresh, you’re disrupting the natural processes that are happening in the soil. In order to continue being sustainable, figure out how to preserve the plants that are already in your yard and then add to it with plants that will complement what’s already in there.

If you live in Atlanta and the surrounding area, you’ll know that the weather patterns are inconsistent. One day it can be 70 degrees, and the next it can be 20. A wild and dynamic weather pattern means that we all need to keep up on our landscaping and yard maintenance a little more fervently, and especially so in the winter when the weather is unpredictable. Investing in landscaping services could be the path to saving your yard. Now is the time to prioritize your landscape, to take care of any repairs, and to invest in preventative landscaping services. In the long run, you will save money and be safe. So what is the most important thing to do to ensure your yard stays in good condition throughout the dead of winter? The answer is: winterize the sprinkler system in your yard.

Today we’re going to give you five reasons as to why you need to make winterizing your sprinkler system a priority. Continue reading to learn more and click play on the video below. If you have any questions or are ready to schedule your winterization, don’t hesitate to contact Michaelangelo’s Sustainable Landscape & Design Group.

Why You Need To Winterize Your Sprinkler System Now

To Prevent Your Irrigation System From Freezing

In the freezing weather, your irrigation system could freeze shut. A frozen system can cause many problems — a dangerous, icy situation as well as broken pipes. And if the wrong pipe breaks, you could find yourself in an emergency. And that’s not even to mention the damage that could happen to your landscape…it’s best to be safe than sorry.

To Prevent Damage To Your Yard and Landscape

You have spent time, energy, and money into creating the landscape and garden design of your dreams. The harsh, freezing weather conditions coming our way could damage the investment you’ve put into your yard if you don’t take preventative action now. Take the time the winterize your sprinkler system to avoid any costly damages in the future.

To Prevent Your Irrigation System From Damage

Getting your sprinkler system winterized prevents the system, including the valves and heads from getting damaged. When the system freezes, it expands and the plastic that it’s made from can easily break. An easy way to prevent this is to integrate a freeze sensor into the irrigation system. This will stop it from going off if/when the weather is below 36 degrees. Contact us today to find out more information about this option.

To Prevent Hairline Cracks From Happening

While hard to detect right away, hairline cracks can result in water pooling up in your yard if not taken care of. Your water bill will skyrocket! The frustrating thing is that oftentimes hairline fractures are unavoidable in the freezing weather. But that is why it’s recommended to take preventative action by winterizing the sprinkler system.

To Prevent The Mainline From Breaking

This is the most important, critical reason why you should winterize your sprinkler system. In the freezing weather, you are running the risk of the main line breaking. This will result in a geyser of water that will soon be ice in winter conditions. You could be putting your family and yourself in a dangerous, icy situation, as well as be facing a costly repair. Save time and money, and ensure that your family and yard stay safe by winterizing your sprinkler system now.
