Guide to Winterizing Your Sprinkler System: Easy Steps to Follow
Winterizing your lawn sprinkler system is recommended to shield it from freezing temperatures and potential damage during colder temperatures. When temperatures dip below freezing, the water inside the system can freeze, expand, and cause pipes to crack, leading to costly repairs in the spring. The positive is that you can winterize your sprinkler system on your own by following a few simple steps. The steps below will walk you through the process of winterizing your sprinkler system effectively.
Follow these step-by-step instructions and you can effectively winterize your sprinkler system and protect it from freezing damage.
Sprinkler System Design Stage
Proper planning and design of your automatic sprinkler system layout is the starting point when preparing for a lawn sprinkler installation. Creating a comprehensive layout drawing is necessary as it visually depicts the precise location of each system component within your yard and determines the optimal placement of zones. This layout not only aids in positioning new landscape beds in both the front and backyards but also proves advantageous when adding features such as a patio. A thoughtfully designed lawn sprinkler system layout offers convenience and flexibility for current and future landscaping needs.
Sprinkler System Layout Design
When designing the lawn sprinkler system layout, we take into account various factors, such as the grass, trees, and plants in your landscape beds. Consideration is given to sidewalks, driveways, and anything else that could be affected. The watering system design should focus on covering the green areas, providing the necessary water for the flourishing of your landscaping. Garland Landscape customizes the sprinkler system for each planted area based on their specific water needs.
We select the appropriate sprinkler pop-up spray heads and nozzles to prevent water wastage on fences or concrete areas. These components ensure a proper flow to the plants while minimizing any loss due to wind. Our professional irrigation contractors can accurately assess water hydraulics and recommend the appropriate PSI settings.
Considering the installation of a drip sprinkler system is also worthwhile. Drip irrigation is a highly effective technique of watering, supplying water directly to the roots through tubes and pipes for maximum efficiency. It involves delivering water directly to the plant’s roots through a network of pipes and tubes. It is particularly advantageous for watering plants in areas with limited water availability. A drip sprinkler system is most effective when the landscaping remains relatively stable and unchanged.
Getting The Proper Parts
Garland Landscape prioritizes using high-quality irrigation components in our systems to ensure optimal performance and longevity. We rely on reputable manufacturers for the most updated and reliable parts whenever possible.
The superior quality translates into more efficient operation and long-term savings. Over time, the reduced water consumption facilitated by the higher-quality components will offset the initial cost difference.

Improper Installation To Be Aware Of
Garland Landscape understands the importance of proper installation to ensure an adequate water supply for your plants and lawn. Unlike some lawn sprinkler system contractors who prioritize lower prices over quality, we prioritize the integrity of our installations. Beware of unscrupulous or inexperienced installers who may cut corners during installation.
One common corner-cutting tactic is using a larger pipe than necessary, avoiding the calculation of the proper water pressure needed. This approach may result in suboptimal performance and inefficiencies.
Managing the Programming and Watering Schedule
Properly programming your underground irrigation system helps with efficient water usage. It is beneficial to schedule your lawn sprinkler to deliver the appropriate amount of water based on the current season. Incorporating a system that allows for year round programming is an option to consider since it eliminates the need to constantly adjust the schedule depending on the weather.
For instance, in Gig Harbor, Washington, the water requirements in February differ significantly from those in July, with February requiring far less water.
If you prefer a more convenient and hands-off approach, you may consider installing a smart Wi-Fi sprinkler controller system. These advanced controllers offer automated scheduling and remote control capabilities, allowing you to set your preferences and easily manage your sprinkler system without constant manual adjustments.
