Here in Cornwall-on-Hudson, we’re finally starting to get a little taste of fall. As you can probably imagine, as a landscaping company, we’re pretty big fans of summer. Summer usually means backyard barbecues, baseball games, and delicious cold beverages. There’s something pretty special about fall as well though because when the breeze starts to feel a little bit chillier and you have a throw on a jacket in the morning on your way to work, the excitement starts to kick in.

Football is just starting back up again and watching your favorite team each week is always a blast. Halloween (and, of course, the candy that we enjoy on this holiday) are right around the corner. School is starting back up and soon we’ll be busy with making sure our kids are at the right practice at the right time. It’s also time to take care of something that you might not necessarily be looking forward to–your sprinkler blowouts.

Don’t Worry–We’ll Handle It

When the temperatures start to drop and the lawn starts to need less water, you know that cold nights will be here before too long. That means that the sprinkler system that has dutifully served you all summer long in order to keep your lawn looking lush and green now requires that you take care of it. It’s a small thing to do for something that does its job well all summer long, but taking care of sprinkler blowouts is something people seem to not look forward to.

Not to worry though, because the team at Benninger Landscaping makes the whole process incredibly easy on you. The goal of having your sprinkler line blown out is to, of course, get rid of any water that might still be in your line. When the temperature starts to dip, as it always does in fall, before you know it, the low temperature in the middle of the night can get to below freezing. What that means for your sprinkler line is that any water that is still caught in there could cause you problems.

As you know, water expands when it freezes and if there’s water that is trapped in your sprinkler line, the expansion could cause a line to rupture or a sprinkler head to burst, causing you more problems down the road. That’s why it’s so important to be sure that the job gets done the right way.
