Dos and Don’t When Preparing Your Lawn for Spring

It’s time to start thinking about spring and how you can get your lawn ready for the season.  Taking the proper steps and avoiding mistakes will ensure your yard is spring-ready—green, lush, and healthy.

Spring Lawn Care Dos

  • Make sure your lawn gets enough water each week—either through rainfall or irrigation methods.  Hint: Spring temperatures are cooler than summertime temperatures.  Therefore, adjust irrigation duration accordingly.  Reserve the 1-1.5″ per week water requirements for the high heat of summer.
  • Rake away any leaves left-over from the fall and winter.  Leaves, sticks, and debris can prevent your lawn from soaking up the sunshine it needs to stay healthy.
  • Test your soil to identify the nutrients it requires to thrive in the spring.

Spring Lawn Care Don’ts

  • Avoid cutting the lawn too short, which can negatively impact the crucial root support during the springtime.
  • Don’t schedule pest control or sprays in the spring unless absolutely necessary.
  • Avoid fertilizing our southern grasses with nitrogen-based fertilizers until the turf is actively growing.

3 Benefits a Fountain Has on Your Community

As an organization or municipality debates enhancements to the community, a new fountain is an excellent consideration.  There are many different ways you can invest in your community.  Installing a water feature that will delight your residents is an easy and cost-effective way to make a positive impact.  Discover three benefits a new fountain will have on your community:

#1: An Opportunity to Experience Nature

In today’s busy, fast-paced world, people spend less time in the great outdoors.  Incorporating a community fountain will provide a way for your residents to get outside and experience nature in a meaningful way.  In addition, the sights and sounds of a fountain will give citizens a nature-based sensory experience that makes a positive impact.

#2: A Place to De-Stress

Few things are as soothing as a fountain.  The gurgling water and ripples create a peaceful ambiance ideal for quiet moments of meditation or reflection.  In this way, adding a water feature in your community will contribute to the health and wellness of your citizens.

#3: A Feeling of Pride for the Community

Boosting community morale is an essential task for any municipality or community organization.  A water feature can be a tool that facilitates pride in your community.  In addition, the architectural beauty of a custom fountain can enhance any space—from city parks to public building landscapes.

Is It Time to Replace or Repair Your Pump System?

When your pump system isn’t operating optimally, you may wonder if you should replace it or if a pump repair is good enough.  A pump repaired professionally may give you a few more years of operational use.  However, in some cases, a new pump system will save you money in the long run.  Keep reading to learn how to know if pump replacement or pump repair is your best option.

When Is Pump System Repair Enough?

If your pump is 15 years old or younger, pump repair may be sufficient to get it back in optimal working condition.  First, find a qualified team to test and inspect your pump to identify the problem.  They will tell you if a repair is possible and how much the repair service will cost.

When Should You Invest in Pump Replacement?

If your pump has repeated leaks, reduced operational performance, and is more than 15 years old, investing in a pump replacement may be the best option.  In some cases, an older pump model may have parts that are no longer available, making it impossible to repair.  Plus, if you have to pay for continual repairs, purchasing a newer model will save you money over time.
