Lifescape Associates just wanted to take a moment to wish you and your family a very happy holiday season. Now is the time to enjoy spending time with all your loved ones from near and far. We hope that you have a chance to take a stroll or ride around the neighborhood to enjoy the beautiful landscape decorations in your neighborhood, town, or city.
Don’t assume that because your irrigation system is shut off during the winter that means you are off duty from watering your landscape. In fact, it is during this time of year that it is extremely necessary to water your yard properly in order to have your landscape plants grow healthy and those colorful blooms pop up in the spring.
With your irrigation system off from November to May, first year plants need essential water and we recommend for existing landscapes water during this period as well. Evergreen plant materials are especially in need of winter water. As you know, the Front Range winters are typically mild and dry. Fall and winter humidity levels commonly range from 9-13%. It takes 12” of snow to equal 1” of water. Lifescape recommends watering two times per month and applying a minimum of 1” of water per width of tree trunks to keep plants alive.

During the fall season, it’s important for Colorado residents to call their landscaping company and schedule a winterization/ irrigation shut off for their landscape. The last thing you want is for the winter to catch you off guard. Your irrigation system is an important working part of your landscape that provides needed moisture. Without winterization, you could be looking at costly repairs for your sprinkler system. Ice can cause damage to your backflow prevention valves, valve chambers and manual ball valves.
Winterization of your irrigation system should be a part of your regular seasonal landscape maintenance to help keep your lawn healthy. To schedule your winterization/ irrigation shut off, simply contact Lifescape at 303-831-8310. There is no need for the headache of extensive and expensive repairs that could have been avoided. Gives us a call today!
