When It’s Time to Turn Off the Sprinklers at Your Carrollton Rental Property

Carrollton Rental Property Watering Their Lawn with Sprinkler System When a Carrollton single-family rental property has an automatic sprinkler system, it is likely to invite quality, long-term residents. That being said, sprinkler systems must be correctly managed and maintained, in much the same way as any other area of a rental property.

Sprinkler systems need to be winterized in the fall, that means they should be drained and turned off before the first deep freeze hits. And right after spring comes up again, sprinkler systems ought to be assessed for damage and then turned on right after all the vital maintenance or repairs have been accomplished.

But who is in charge of these repair and maintenance tasks? That depends on the terms within your lease. There are landlords who believe that having tenants do routine sprinkler system maintenance and turning them on or off every season is the appropriate policy. Others, however, would feel better having an expert oversee the process since a broken sprinkler pipe can cause extensive property damage quickly, and a non-performing system would make it next to impossible for the renter to maintain a healthy lawn or landscape features.

Though some tenants may be skilled enough to handle basic sprinkler system maintenance and even a small number of repairs, you’re still running a risk if you permit them to do it. If your renters neglect to winterize the system, you could most certainly have a flooded predicament on your hands. Or, if they don’t have the expertise to fix a broken pipe or sprinkler head, they may leave lawns or trees to die.

If you don’t want to do sprinkler system maintenance and repair yourself, your safest alternative is to employ a professional landscape company to complete it for you. That way, you are sure that the job gets carried out properly and promptly, year after year. Regrettably, not all landscape companies offer high-class service and you will notice that the costs can sneak up on you and add up quickly.
