Seasonal irrigation strategies
As we move into early fall, we focus attention on adjusting and maintaining your irrigation system for the changing season. If new grass seed has been added to fill in areas of your property or if an overseeding was performed, your irrigation system may need to be adjusted to provide the proper amount of water for germination and root development before the cold of winter moves in. Before the first hard freeze envelopes our area, our irrigation professionals will perform a careful inspection of your entire system to be sure that all lines, seals, and sprinkler heads are in good condition before closing for the winter. All lines are then drained or blown out as needed to remove any remaining water that could potentially freeze, damaging the fittings and possibly bursting the pipes. This winterization process will make for a smooth reopening with the return of spring’s thaw.
Prepare now for snow removal
Snow and ice are a natural part of wintertime living here in the Northeast, and the team at Gerbert & Sons will ease the burden of clearing them away with our removal services. Contact us early to secure your space on our snow plowing schedule before the threat of the first winter storm is upon us. Along with plowing and sanding your driveway, we use environmentally-friendly ice melting products to keep walkways clear and safe, while protecting pets, plants and masonry. The latest technology to melt snow and ice is a hydronic system that circulates a warm water solution through tubes installed under the driveway and walkways, and can be controlled with the flip of an indoor switch or programmed to be fully automated. Have our experts advise the best approach for removing winter’s precipitation from your property ahead of the first flakes.
