Winterize Your Irrigation System with Outdoor Solutions Columbus, GA

Winterize Your Irrigation System

Let Outdoor Solutions help you winterize your irrigation system.

Winterize Your Irrigation System with Outdoor Solutions Columbus, GAAs most people know, during the cooler months grass becomes dormant. This leaves lawns with a substantially lower need for water compared to spring and summer months. During this time, most homeowners winterize their irrigation system. They do this by shutting their irrigation systems down. It is important to winterize the irrigation system to avoid costly repairs in the spring time.

Is your irrigation system fed from a nearby body of water, such as a lake or pond? If so, this is the time to winterize the pump.

There are various methods and techniques to winterize your irrigation system. For most properties in our area, the frost line doesn’t extend below the depth of the installed pipes. This requires different techniques, which Outdoor Solutions specializes in to help you winterize your irrigation system.

Fertilization Programs + Pre-emergent – Columbus, GA

Don’t forget about PRE-EMERGENT!

When most think of a fertilization program they think it is just that… only fertilizer applications. They aren’t thinking about a dual application process! Outdoor Solutions of Columbus specializes in fertilization programs that include pre-emergent applications in the Columbus, GA area. Incorporating pre-emergent is the most effective in the fight against weeds during the Columbus, GA Spring and Summer.

Growing spine-like tiers, flat blades and branches reaching out as far as they can; nobody likes crabgrass in their lawn. It’s a pesky summer weed that germinates in late spring or early summer and never seems to go away. However, with the right fertilization program that includes pre-emergent application at the right time, the germination of this and other unsightly weeds will be dramatically reduced.

Pre-emergent alone is not a fertilizer; it is an herbicide which helps to prevent weed seeds from germinating by blocking an essential enzyme. It does not necessarily stop the germination process, but does prevent the weed from breaking through its barrier and emerging in the lawn. This herbicide needs a substance to bind with for the application process. The agent frequently used to bind with pre-emergent is fertilizer. This is sometimes referred to as weed and feed due to the weed seed prevention components, as well as the beneficial fertilization
