Summer is here! It’s time for beach filled weekends, iced tea, water sports, BBQ, picnics and all the fun things we associate with gorgeous weather. Here at the Samples residence, we have already been enjoying the light breezes from the golf course in the hammock. We also have had our BBQ running for a couple of months and have had the pleasure of entertaining our friends in the backyard with delicious smoked whole chicken and watermelon salad. Life is good!
Living on a golf course has its perks; however, it can be hard competing with the gorgeous grounds of the course right in your backyard. We live on the first hole and there is quite a bit of traffic going through our yard. Everyone sees our lawn and therefore it is particularly important to the homeowners association, as well as to us that it looks just as nice. So how do we do it and still have time leftover to enjoy ourselves?
You can have the perfect lawn for summer entertaining with TruGreen Sprinkler Repair & Maintenance.
Last year our lawn really suffered and the year before that was worse. As a matter of fact, we had to re-sod the entire front lawn a little over a year ago because it had died. It was then that we decided that we didn’t know what we were doing. We had an irrigation system but had no clue who to set up each zone for watering. We didn’t know what all the buttons and settings were and honestly, had no desire to read the thick book that it all came with. Unfortunately, since we didn’t know what we were doing it didn’t take long for the lawn to die. Whether we were overwatering it in the winter or scorching it in the summer, it was all hit and miss for us.
When TruGreen approached us and let us know that they were offering their Sprinkler Repair & Maintenance services in the Orlando market we jumped at the chance to work with them. The initially came out to see what they were going to be working with and it was at that time they discovered that our main control box wasn’t even working. They had to replace it and installed a new rain sensor that was way better than the one that came with the system originally. Once that was complete they took a look at the individual heads, figured out where we needed more coverage and where we needed less. They lined them up so that all areas were getting equal amounts of watering. Finally, they set the watering times that worked according to the water usage laws for our area (Note: I didn’t realize there were even such rules in place.) Now they come out and check the system, make sure the system is working and make any adjustments needed. We don’t even have to be home!
The cost of this service is much less than we had expected and if you give them a call they will be happy to come give you a quote, at no charge.
