Each year, before the first freeze, the rite of irrigation "blow out" becomes the precedence for all irrigation systems which are in areas of the nation where the frost degree goes below the depth of the installed piping.
Due to the potential dangers involved with winterization, it is best to call OC-Garden Care professionals.
Even when you have emptied some water out of the system, the remaining water can freeze, expand and decode the PVC piping, typically from fitting to fitting. Freezing water in the back flow assembly will damage the internal parts and may maybe break the brass body.
To minimize the chance of freeze damage to your irrigation system, you will need to "winterize" your irrigation system. Irrigation systems in places where "winterization" is compulsory are installed using one of three forms of water removal in head: manual drain, auto drain, or blowout.
SPRINKLER SYSTEMS WINTERIZATION
We will come to your property, shut off the system and remove water from every zone in your irrigation system. Then we will also winterize your backflow device and turn off your irrigation controller.
We will take the following 8-step process to make sure that every component of your sprinkler system is fully protected:
After laying dormant for many cold winter months, your sprinkler system needs to be turned on and fully inspected before it can be put to use in the spring. During a spring startup, we will do a full zone-by-zone inspection and test every head. Here is a detailed list of procedures that we do during a spring startup:

Spring is a time of rebirth and reawakening from a long winter's nap. Getting out into the fresh air of spring can do much to revitalize your plants as well as you.
Regardless of the amount of cleanup you did last fall, there is always more to do to get your lawn and landscape ready for the spring season.
OC-Garden-Service spring/fall clean-up process, we remove all leaves, branches and other debris that has accumulated over the course of winter/summer around your property, landscape beds and haul it all away.

Our spring clean up service includes:
As we approach the end of the growing season and prepare for the cold winter, you need to know that most diseases survive through winter within infected plant debris.
Diseases persist in the soil, in fallen leaves, or in dead branches remaining on the plant. Therefore, we try to minimize the amount of diseases that survive winter by removing all debris prior to the first snowfall.
We’ll recommend the best healthcare practices for your plants and follow up with organic, late-season fertilizer and mulches.

"Aeration is one of the best ways to make your lawn thicker and improve the effectiveness of normal irrigation, fertilizers and lawn damaging insect control programs."
The aeration process is based on simple mechanics and yields big results.
If you put OC-Garden-Services equipment on any lawn, on any given day, with our operators, we guarantee that you will get a deeper penetration and an all around better experience than literally any other company.
Aerating your lawn has numerous benefits, including:
Core aeration offers many benefits for your lawn, and has proven to be one of the most essential processes in maintaining a healthy, thick lawn.
The process opens up the lawn by removing small plugs of soil and thatch, allowing more air, water and nutrients to reach the root zone, which will lead to better plant growth.
The microorganisms in the plugs that remain on the surface will dissolve back into the thatch layer to help it breakdown, naturally. The process also reduces compaction.
If your thatch problem is severe, you’ll want to have lawn core aeration performed several times a year, preferably twice at a minimum. Lawn aeration can be done any time of the year as long as the lawn isn't soggy.
We highly recommend Lawn Aeration in late August, September or October. No worries. We charge at competitive rates. Contact us at (949) 899-3393.
