Habitat ReStore Donations Create Homes for Others

Lamps, chandeliers, track lights or sconces? Yes! Dining room sets, even that huge table for 12 that won't fit in your new house? Yes! Recliners, sofas, upholstered chairs or ottomans that aren't stained, ripped or otherwise damaged? Absolutely. Refrigerators in working condition that aren't likely to fail in the next year? The Habitat ReStore in Cape May Court House can't get enough of them, and most are sold the same day they hit the floor.

Have my Sprinkler Spring Turn on Completed by the Professionals, or do it Myself?

It’s easy to turn on the sprinkler system at your home and you can easily turn them on yourself, right? Wrong!

Water Requirements for Your Lawn Sprinkler System during the Spring Season

Spring is the time of the year when your landscape is starting to emerge from the long cold winter season. The buds on the trees are finally starting to develop. The roots on your plants and grass are beginning  to grow again and plant life is regaining it’s beautiful vibrant colors.

At this time of the year your automatic lawn sprinkler system needs to be properly “started up” and reviewed. All repairs and alterations should be performed (by only a qualified irrigation technician) at this time to ensure your system is operating at its peak performance. The water duration and frequency of the watering cycles  (aka settings) should be programmed into the lawn sprinkler controller to deliver just the right amount of moisture during each irrigation cycle. Over watering at this time is a common problem and can severely hurt or diminish the growth  of your seasonal plantings and existing evergreens.

During the annual spring start up visit, Pacific Lawn Sprinklers will program your irrigation controller for the adequate amount of water required at this time of year. A complete inspection of all main lines, lateral lines, backflow preventers and electric solenoid valves will be performed. Each sprinkler head will be checked and adjusted to ensure proper coverage and operation.
