When is The Best Time to Water Your Lawn in Florida?

By |April 20th, 2021|Categories: Irrigation System, Sprinkler System, Watering|Tags: , , , |Comments Off on When is The Best Time to Water Your Lawn in Florida?

Knowing the best time to water your Lawn in Florida is crucial to avoid diseases, mold or excessive water bills. Here’s a quick low-down on the best time to water your lawn: When Is The Best Time to Water My Lawn? Early Morning Early in the morning is the best time to water your lawn in Florida. Ideally, before 9 am. During these early hours, the sun is at a low angle, with lower air temperatures. Cooler conditions minimize water loss and allow the water to soak into the ground to reach plant roots. Avoid Afternoons Don’t wait until the afternoon. By then, the air temperature is too hot and the sun causes evaporation of any water on the surface of your plants and grass. Root systems are also less likely to get water in the heat, so you’ll be wasting water and money. Why Not in The Night? Before 9 am is the ideal time to water your lawn, but you need to find the sweet spot. That’s because watering at night can cause damage. Water during hot and humid nights can cause disease as the water sits on the grass all night long with the dew. In colder temperatures, it can also cause fungus and disease. However, it’s still a better option than watering under the afternoon’s sun, where your grass will dry out. When Does My Lawn Need Watering? Contrary to popular belief, you may not need to water your lawn every day unless you’re growing it from seed or sod. Already grown lawns only need to be watered every day when you see these warning signs: The grass has a tint of blue to it. The grass blades sag or turn in on themselves. Footprints remain after walking on your lawn. If you see any of [...]

How to Care for Your Lawn in Florida during Winter Months

By |January 9th, 2019|Categories: Irrigation System, Sprinkler Repair, Sprinkler System, Watering|Tags: , , , , , |Comments Off on How to Care for Your Lawn in Florida during Winter Months

Many people ask us how to maintain their lawns in Florida during winter. That's because in our state we're lucky enough to enjoy winters under the sun; so despite temperatures dropping, grass still needs to look vibrant. While friends and family suffer amongst deep snow and treacherous conditions up north, Florida folk get to sit around in the garden, near the pool and have gatherings all year long. If you want a garden that impresses during the winter, you need to know how to keep your lawn healthy and shining! Here are our key tips for using your Clearwater Sprinkler System to protect your lawn during winter: Start Preparing in the Fall Ideal winter lawn care starts a good month or so before the turn of the new year. By preparing for the changing temperatures, your grass will benefit when the colder weather hits. Changing your watering times and using the advice below in mid-fall will pay-off as the seasons change. Stop Fertilizing in advance The optimal time to stop fertilizing your grass is around September to October. Although grass in Florida grows well during the hot months, it tends to struggle during the winter. Fertilizer and cold weather isn't a good mix, so adding fertilizer can actually damage your grass and ruin all the work you've put in earlier in the year. Overseed! Fertilizer won't do the trick, but overseeding will. You need lots of seeds that are known for providing grass that can endure winters. The cold weather grass will keep your lawn healthy during the winter, but die off in time for summer when it'll be replaced by your warm weather grass again! Pro-tips: Make sure you mow your lawn and remove any debris, fungus or weeds before you start seeding! Ryegrass is a popular, reliable winter [...]

When Do You Need To Replace Your Sprinkler Heads?

By |October 23rd, 2018|Categories: Irrigation System, Sprinkler Repair, Sprinkler System|Tags: , , , |Comments Off on When Do You Need To Replace Your Sprinkler Heads?

Replacing damaged sprinkler heads is a common repair job for Irrigation and Sprinkler business owners. A faulty sprinkler head means your garden is going to lose its charm quickly and you’ll be rapidly wasting money on your water bills. Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to spot a damaged Sprinkler head and a cheap repair can turn your garden’s fortunes around! Although it can be complicated to know which parts are needed, it’s a task that a Tampa Sprinkler Repair team can come complete swiftly. 1: Identifying Damaged Sprinkler Heads Once you notice an erratic, unreliable or damaged Sprinkler head then you need to identify what type it is. Whether it's a pop-up or impact head, it needs to be the same type as before to fit in with your sprinkler system’s set-up. Replacing a sprinkler head with the wrong model will cause spraying distance and pattern problems that leave your lawn poorly watered. The specifications can usually be found on the nozzle or a label, but if not then the All Phaze experts can have a quick check over and make sure you get the best parts. Although you can change brand, you can't change type without changes further along in your system. 2: Removing the damaged parts The installation process is thankfully inexpensive, but complications can arise if you don’t know what you’re doing. Once the water system is completely turned off, the surrounding dirt will need to be dug out before removing the damaged head with a wrench or pliers. However, the risk is that dirt enters the water line if the hole fills with water. That can cause further problems and damage the new parts shortly after. A professional will know how to avoid harmful amounts of dirt entering and flush the system before leaving. 3: Installing the [...]

Dead spots, brown spots and worn out patches of grass are painfully irritating for anyone who takes pride in their lawn's appearance.

Thatch is a layer of dead or diseased grass that is found between soil and a healthy surface layer.

You'll need to rake the entire lawn, removing any dead grass that lifts up. 2 - Cultivate Regular cultivation is a handy task for any grass that is in desperate need of a helping hand.

Outdoor Lighting: What Will It Bring To Your Home?

By |August 20th, 2018|Categories: Landscape Lighting|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Outdoor Lighting: What Will It Bring To Your Home?

Every homeowner is eager to incorporate the upgrades needed to unlock the full potential of their properties. However, knowing which items are worth your investment can be the toughest challenge of all. Outdoor lighting is undoubtedly among the best options at your disposal. Whether it’s standard outdoor lighting, landscape lighting, or lighting for swimming pools and water features, there’s no doubt that those additions can enhance your home in several ways. Here are just three of the significant benefits to be gained from making this selection. Improved Security The harsh reality of life is that a house will never feel like a home until it is safe. While there are many internal dangers to consider too, the threat of intruders is the one that will prevent you from truly relaxing around the property. Outdoor lighting can certainly aid the cause. Illuminating the external areas makes it easier for you to spot burglars as soon as they enter your grounds, which would give you time to prepare and call for help should a situation arise. Moreover, though, knowing that they’d be seen will deter thieves from even attempting a break-in. Besides, the outdoor lighting suggests that someone is home, which also deters cowardly thieves. On a similar note, the illumination will allow you to navigate your way through the garden and patio without tripping over or causing damage to the property or yourself. Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal Outdoor lighting has come a long way in recent times. The days of relying solely on a standard floodlight are long gone. Nowadays, there is a range of products at your disposal, and they can be used to create some genuinely incredible appearances. Let’s face it; this is a significant incentive for any homeowner. Lights can be installed above patio coverings, built into walls, or [...]
