 If you notice there is water slowly coming out of an irrigation head when the system shouldn’t be watering is a sign of a leaking irrigation valve.
Water shooting up in the air –That is definitely not a good sign! A hole in a mainline will run continuously and will be very noticeable but a broken irrigation head will only run when the zone cycles.
Do you have taller grass around an irrigation head? This usually means that the irrigation head is cracked, broken, or clogged.
An irrigation leak can waste as mush as 6,300 gallons of water a month. That’s 75,000 gallons a year!

OUTDOOR LIGHTING

Don’t have any lighting yet??
No need to panic, we have some great ideas for you. Choosing the right lighting for your home is very important because you want the best for your home. Here are some points you want to consider:
-Why is landscape lighting important?

You’ve pulled out all the stops to make your house and yard look first-rate. So why let that hard work disappear at nightfall? Landscape lighting enhances the beauty of your surroundings—objects, fountains, architecture, and landscaping—after the sun goes down and increases the value of your home. It expands your outdoor living space and adds hours to your outdoor activity. Also, creating illuminated architectural features like walkways, driveways, steps, decks and stairs can ensure safe passage from one point to another while adding security
.-Low voltage lighting-Most landscape lighting today is low voltage, and with good reason. Unlike 120-volt systems, it’s safer to work with and less costly to install. And though low-voltage lights receive one-tenth the power, thanks to a step-down transformer, there’s no limit to the effects they can achieve, from ethereal moonlight beamed down from a tree canopy to a subtle glow that washes over a low garden wall. More than just picking the right hardware, a pleasing lighting scheme is also about artistry.
Go LED-These lights use less energy and they last far longer than other bulb types, with less or zero maintenance.
