Don’t Shut Your Irrigation Off Just Yet!

At Virginia Green, we get questions daily from our customers regarding watering. “How much should I water?” “When is the best time to water my lawn and landscaping?” But the most important question this time of year is, “when should I shut off my irrigation system for the year?”

As you know, fall is the best time to plant seed in our area, and newly planted seed needs to be watered. Virginia Green suggests scheduling an appointment with your irrigation company for late November to have them winterize your irrigation system. This timing will allow you to continue to water your lawn and landscape for our recommended 28 days after aeration and seeding.

Virginia Green does not work on irrigation systems, but we do have partner companies that we recommend. If you need assistance with your irrigation system and do not have a company that you use, please click here to see our partner list.
