When it comes to lawn care, sprinklers are one of the most important tools in your arsenal. They help you water your lawn evenly and efficiently, ensuring that your grass stays healthy and looking good. In this guide, we will discuss the benefits of sprinklers and their maintenance. We’ll also provide some tips on how to use sprinklers effectively to keep your lawn looking great all year round!
There are many benefits to using sprinklers, including:
- Watering your lawn evenly and efficiently by using sprinklers can help you avoid brown patches and other problems associated with uneven watering.
- Sprinklers can save you time by eliminating the need to hand-water your lawn.
- They can also save you money by conserving water since sprinklers allow you to control how much water is used on your lawn.
- Keeping your grass healthy and looking good.
Go one step further with a smart sprinkler controller. Smart sprinkler controllers are the latest innovation in sprinkler technology. They connect to your home’s Wi-Fi network and allow you to control your sprinklers using your smartphone or tablet.
Some of the features of smart sprinkler controllers include:
- Automatic scheduling based on weather conditions, so your sprinklers will only water when needed.
- The ability to customize your sprinkler settings for each zone of your lawn.
- Easy integration with other smart home devices, so you can control your sprinklers along with your lights, thermostat, and more.
- Remote access, so you can turn on your sprinklers while you’re away from home.
If you’re looking for an even more efficient way to water your lawn, consider investing in a smart sprinkler controller. They offer many benefits that can help you save time, money, and effort. Contact us to learn more about smart sprinkler controllers and to discuss the right option for your budget and watering needs.
We also recommend installing a wireless rain sensor to any type of system for a minimal investment. A featured product we have available is Climate Logic, a system that mounts to your gutter and gathers data on temperature, solar input, and rainfall. This data is processed and automatically adjusts your controller for optimal water usage. Our customers in Omaha get a $75 rebate with MUD when they install one!

Like any other type of lawn care equipment, sprinklers need to be maintained in order to work properly. Here are some tips for keeping your sprinklers in top condition:
- Inspect your sprinklers regularly for damage and leaks.
- Clean your sprinklers regularly to prevent clogs and build-up.
- Winterize your sprinklers properly to prevent freezing and damage.
Whether you need routine maintenance, repairs, or new components added to your existing system, SunCo has you covered. Our sprinkler experts offer year-around visits to help make sure your sprinkler system is at its best.
In the spring, it’s time to let our outdoor specialists activate your sprinkler system. A sprinkler specialist will turn on the main water supply, examine the system for any winter damage, reset/adjust the clock, and adjust all heads. Schedule your activation now if you haven’t already!
As the season changes, so do the water requirements for your yard. We will examine the system for leaks and damages, adjust the clock, and verify that all heads are still in proper alignment.
Every year, homeowners neglect their sprinkler systems, not understanding that even a small amount of water left in their sprinkler system over the winter will freeze and result in costly repairs. During a sprinkler winterization, our specialists will make sure every drop of water is removed from all the components of your sprinkler system, preserving the life of your system and getting it ready for spring.
Maintenance packages and more
While you can still pick and choose your sprinkler services that fit your needs, you can get all three of these visits in a year with our sprinkler maintenance package. We also offer repair and service on all brands of sprinkler systems. Our professional technicians are equipped with the necessary products, equipment, and knowledge to get your sprinkler system up and working in a timely manner, so you don’t have to lift a finger.
