How To Make a Lawn Green

How to help your lawn stay green

Keeping lawns green can be a struggle, no matter what part of the country you're in. And it can be hard to find reliable ways of helping your lawn. But Sprinkler Master is here to help! We have years of experience working with sprinklers and lawns, and we've learned some things about sprinkler systems and how they work with lawns.

We have branches in many states, and have done research and looked at studies to discover the best way to keep your lawn green.

Believe it or not, watering your lawn less can actually help your grass stay greener, longer. Watering the top of your lawn less encourages your grass to grow roots deeper into the soil, creating more resiliant grass. This helps the grass become much more efficient at making use of the water that it's given, and when you water properly, the moisture will saok into the soil deeper, where it's less likely to evaporate before the grass can soak it up.

No matter where you find yourself, Sprinkler Master Repair can help. Specifically, with three main frameworks for a healthy lawn any year and under any climate. Those three tenets are Fertilization, Irrigation, and proper Maintenance/Management. While some locations may vary with a lawn care need, know that you can find a Sprinkler Master location anywhere near you here.

1. Proper Fertilization

A key to any healthy lawn and a good general rule of thumb is that you put out what you put in. Taking care of a lawn doesn’t need to be overly complicated, but unfortunately, it can be at times. That’s why we’re here to help! Two reasons why most people don’t fertilize or fertilize the wrong way boils down to not knowing what kind to get, and not knowing how to. We’re going to clear some things up right now! Depending on where you live and what climate you reside in, it’s generally best to fertilize your lawn mid-to-late spring. As soon as the grass starts to turn a shade green again, and flowers start to bloom, that’s the jackpot. For a bit more definition, check out this Popular Mechanics article!

Now that we’ve covered the when — let’s talk about the how of fertilizing. How do you know what fertilizer to use? What fertilizer is best for your particular climate or grass-type? Does fertilizer even matter in the first place? There’s an answer to all those things, and we’ve got ’em! Like a lot of everything else, fertilizers come in all different shapes, styles, and purposes. We break things down below:

  • Thinking about using inorganic fertilizers? Click here!
  • Considering organic fertilizers? Check this out!

2. All Things Irrigation

Irrigation is defined as “the artificial application of water to land to assist in the production of crops.” In essence, your irrigation techniques are only as good as your sprinkler system. However, proper irrigation is broken down into four methods. Proper Irrigation Management is detailed on a surface, sprinkler, drip, and sub-surface level. While that may seem complicated, to a Sprinkler Master; it’s not! A general rule of thumb no matter where you live is to water deep. A lawn has more opportunity to grow and be healthy with longer, infrequent watering sessions. Instead of watering 10 minutes for 4-5 days a week, water for 45 minutes 2-3 days a week. The more moments you allow water to infiltrate deep into the root system the better.

Do you still have some questions about irrigation or sprinkler systems? Sprinkler Master Repair can help with that! Get in touch with any of our franchise locations. We can help you with sprinkler installation, irrigation repairs, fixing broken sprinkler heads, winterization, and anything else in between! Check out some other irrigation tips below:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Strengthening Tree Roots with Sprinkler Master Repair

With recent strong winds in the western states, it uprooted many trees. Many of the trees could have been saved if they were watered properly.

The main cause of trees and shrubbery to be uprooted is a lack of deep-watering. Trees and shrubs carry a deeper root system than normal turf-grass and need to be watered less frequently day to day, but with longer periods of time in between. Moist soil depth should be anywhere between 18-20 inches for most trees and shrubs. Click here to understand more about the importance of a deep root system for your garden, shrubbery, and trees.

Get to Know Your Sprinkler Pumps with Sprinkler Master Repair

Knowing about your sprinkler pumps is important if you want a healthy, green lawn. By counting on the services of Sprinkler Master Repair, we’re here to help you know all you need to know when it comes to these important pumps. If you have any questions or concerns, or perhaps if you’d just like to get in touch with us, click here to be directed to any of our franchise locations around the United States!

ITS PURPOSESprinkler Master Flag

Sprinkler Pumps are used to increase pressure in a sprinkler system. Pumps are typically used in low-pressure or large systems. They are usually between 3 and 5 horsepower, depending on the size of the sprinkler system, and are usually connected to 115 volts and 230 volts. The pipe sizes are usually between 1 and two inches with not much fluctuation in between. Though the pumps are simple enough, there are things you’ll need to do to maintain them properly.

Click here to watch a video that gives a general overview of the sprinkler pump, and get in touch with any of our Sprinkler Master Repair locations to get your questions answered or your needs met!

Names of Parts:

Pump: These increase water pressure and volume and are run by an electric motor.

Pump Start Relays: These are electrically operated switches that turn on the pump. It’s started by a surge from the sprinkler timer that sends the power to the pump.

Foot Valves: These valves let water into the system and prevents the pump from draining out. Usually, these are used when you’re pulling water from a body of water such as a canal or a lake.

Loss of Prime Switches: are switches that will turn off the pump if there is no water coming into the pump. This prevents pump burnouts.

Above-Ground Sprinkler Pumps: boost the water pressure in the system by a significant amount. A downside is that they are very expensive, both to buy and repair.

Sprinkler RepairCommon Problems with Sprinkler Pumps:

  • Not getting power
  • The pump is bad
  • Cracks in the pump causing leaks
  • Bad pump start relay
  • Not enough water getting to the pump
  • Clogged filter

How to Diagnose and Repair Problems:

With a pump, there can only be 3 sources to a problem.

1. The pump is bad

2. Power isn’t reaching the pump

3. Water is not getting to the pump

You know the pump is bad if there is power running to it, but it’s still not functioning. Use a multimeter to test if there is power on the wires. If the pump is bad, you will most likely need to replace it or have it rebuilt. If no power is getting to the pump, use a multi-meter to see if you are getting power.

There are 4 things that could be why the pump is not getting power:

  1. Power In: Check and see if there is power coming to the relay. If there is not power, the breaker might have tripped.
  2. Relay Switch: If power is coming to the relay switch, check the outgoing part to see if you are getting power going out of the relay. If no power is going out, it is most likely a bad relay switch.
  3. Bad Wiring: If you are getting power going out of the relay but not to the pump, most likely there is a break in the wire.
  4. Loss of Prime Switches: You can manually override the loss of prime switch to see if that is causing the problem. If the loss of prime is turning off the pump, it’s most likely doing its job and the system lacks the incoming pressure to run stably. If it has enough PSI, but the switch is not working, the switch could be bad but if its low PSI, it could be a filter that needs to be cleaned.

How to Install or Repair:

Pumps should be installed on a flat, secure surface such as a plastic box or cement. Pumps should also be installed with a cover to protect them from weathering and wearing prematurely. For installation of the electrical components, make sure to follow all guidelines from the pump manufacturer, and know if it’s 110 volts or 220 volts coming to the pump. Whenever dealing with any electrical parts on the pump, ensure the breaker is turned off.

If a pump goes out, it can be replaced and hooked back up as long as none of the existing wires are modified or changed. A pump should be on its own breaker and connected to a relay. When connecting a pump to a sprinkler system, make sure it comes right off the main water supply before it connects to any components (except a filter and main valve). Usually, the main water supply connects to the center of the pump (usually a 1 ½ inch female connection) and comes out of the top or side (usually a 1-inch female connection). Since pumps are installed above ground, make sure to use the galvanized pipe.

When you’re finished with the pumps, make sure they are primed — which means that they have water inside that can keep the pieces lubricated. However, if there is pressure coming into the system, you usually won’t have to prime. In the case that you do, there is a primer access port usually on top of the pump. Remove the plug and pour water into it, replace the plug and run it for a few seconds.

Tips and Tricks:

Pumps often run at expensive prices. Be sure that you know what you’re doing, or get in touch with any of our Sprinkler Master Repair locations by clicking here.
