Proper irrigation is essential to the health and beauty of your lawn. Too little water can inhibit root growth and lead to dry, yellow patches. Too much water can encourage weeds, weaken the root system, and promote the growth of fungus, root rot, and other diseases. To maintain a healthy middle ground – hydrating your lawn without overwhelming it – contact Nixa Lawn Service. We are a full-service irrigation contractor and can help you with the installation of an irrigation system as well as repairs, audits, and backflow inspections.
Irrigation System Installation
Looking to install a new irrigation system? If you contact Nixa Lawn Service, a certified designer will plan a custom irrigation system to fit the unique layout of your lawn. We install smart controllers and weather sensors on every job for your convenience, and unlike some of our competitors, we will fully clean up your lawn afterward. Although the installation of an irrigation system will temporarily damage your lawn, we will do our best to minimize the damage, so that in just a few weeks, it will look like we were never there.
Backflow Inspection & Service
Most cities in southwest Missouri require an annual test of backflow devices to ensure that they are working properly. If you neglect to test your device, not only could the government turn off your water, but you will also risk contaminating your drinking water with bacteria and lawn chemicals. At Nixa Lawn Service, we have a certified backflow tester on staff who can inspect and service your backflow valve.
Beyond scheduling your annual inspection, remember to shut off your irrigation system in the winter and blow the water out of all the lines to avoid bursting the pipes. This quick preventative maintenance could help you avoid costly repairs.
As time goes by, the elements may take a toll on your irrigation system. Hard water can clog valves and create leaks, old or outdated components will eventually break down, and power surges or lightning strikes can fry controllers and electronic valves. Whatever the problem may be, give Nixa Lawn Service a call when your irrigation system malfunctions. We can diagnose and repair a variety of issues, including all of the following:
- Clogged sprinklers
- Leaking sprinklers and valves
- Obstructed sprinklers
- Electronic issues
- Missing nozzles
- Overspray into sidewalks, streets, or buildings
- Irrigation system design issues
- Pipe leaks or breaks
If you have forgotten who originally installed your aging irrigation system or you have purchased a new house with an old irrigation system, contact Nixa Lawn Service to schedule an audit. Because irrigation systems are not regulated by building codes or standards, many older systems are not properly installed. We can audit your irrigation system and implement needed changes to ensure that it is as efficient and effective as possible. Most audits include the installation of a smart weather sensor, which will monitor temperature and rainfall so that your lawn can be watered efficiently. This will allow you to conserve water and save money while still maintaining a lovely lawn.
