You’ve aerated and mowed your lawn for the last time this year. It’s been weeded, fed, and the hedges have been trimmed. Now that winter is on its way, you’re ready to take a break from lawn care for at least a few months, right? Not so fast.
If you haven’t had your sprinkler system winterized, you’re not quite done with your lawn care chores yet.
Sprinkler System Winterization Is Necessary For Smart Lawn Care
Unlike traditional sprinklers, which can simply be disconnected and wrapped up with the hose, in-ground sprinkler systems require a bit more attention when the watering season is done.
Sure, you could just ignore your sprinkler system, putting it out of your mind like the rest of the lawn care tasks that you won’t think about again until spring. Doing this could result in significant damage to your sprinkler system, however.
If the ground freezes deep enough, it could freeze the pipes of your sprinkler system. If there’s any water left lingering in the pipes, a freeze could cause the pipes to burst. When pipes burst in your home, you know because there’s water all over your house. But what if pipes burst underground where you can’t see them?
Next summer, you could find that you’re on the hook for high-dollar repairs that could all have been avoided if you simply winterized the sprinkler system.
