Fall’s the time to make sure you properly prepare your irrigation system for the long, cold winter ahead.

If your lawn sprinkler system is not winterized you run the risk of having the lines, sprinkler heads, and backflow preventer valve freeze and crack, which can not only incur significant repair costs but prevent you from getting an early start on beautifying your lawn at the beginning of the critical spring growing season.
