What Winter Means for Your Greenery
Winter weather is starting to really sweep in across all regions of Canada, putting most outdoor landscaping on hold until spring. With the new year quickly approaching, business owners in Toronto and other major cities may take this time to reflect on landscaping projects that can be undertaken in the coming months. The installation of commercial sprinklers may very well be high up on that priority list.
Well-manicured lawns and full, vibrant shrubbery can provide businesses with a great amount of “curb appeal, with commercial sprinklers playing a vital role in this. Underground irrigation systems will ultimately prove to be cost-efficient, as watering grounds on a set timer, specific to the needs of the irrigation in the area and prevents over watering, which saves on water expenses. Not only is it healthy for your wallet, it’s an eco-friendly option that will prove to significant in the long-run.
In terms of labour and the costs associated with having landscapers spending their time lugging around hoses and sprinklers, spending better parts of the day simply watering large tracts of property, commercial sprinklers eliminate this. Time spent performing this tedious, mundane task, often on a daily basis, can be better spent on other landscaping priorities.
It is most highly recommended that commercial property owners and homeowners alike who have determined that they are going to install an underground irrigation system bring in professionals to do this job. Proper watering of property can be in all respects a rather complex process to set up and implement correctly. Different areas of the property, known as “zones”, will most commonly be watered at different times, making even distribution quite simple.
Professionally-trained service technicians and mechanics – like the ones at EZ Lawn Sprinklers –will be able to come in and perform all necessary tasks from day one all the way through completion. After digging out and installing the underground pipes and sprinkler heads, they will set and adjust the sprinklers so that each specific zone is covered when watering is taking place. Professional experience here will ensure full area coverage, with no zone being under or over saturated.
They will install the timer or controller, program it according to the client’s preferences, and in turn educate the client on the system programming so that they may make changes to the watering schedule as they see fit.
Businesses that purchase commercial sprinklers from a company should be able to count on that company to make return visits, performing tasks such as winterizing and making adjustments to the sprinklers and perhaps timing system as needed or scheduled.
A beautiful landscape is a wonderful sight to behold. For a business, it can cast a very favorable first impression for clients or customers. An efficient, cost-efficient irrigation system can go a very long way towards making this all a happy reality in this New Year to come.
