Irrigation & Sprinkler Start Up

During April and May, we recommend our spring start-up service to get your sprinkler and irrigation system up and running for the season. Winter ground heaving, heavy snowfall and snow removal can all take a toll on adjustments and function of your sprinkler heads. Our Spring Start-up service inspects for all the issues winter leaves behind. As well, from year to year your landscaping changes, shrubs and trees grow and sometimes landscaping is redesigned or changes. At the time of Spring Start-up, we review the design of your current irrigation system and the condition of your sprinklers in order to recommend changes or enhancements that will ensure your irrigation system meets the needs of all of your lawn and plants in the most efficient manner. From a simple head change, to the addition of entire zones, our technicians will work with you to optimize turf and plant coverage.

We will check all the components to ensure your system is fully functional for the watering season. This service includes:

Turn water on to the sprinkler system and inspect sprinkler plumbing and vacuum breaker.

Diagnose any repairs that need to be made to the sprinklers or irrigation system.

Activate the controller, set watering schedule and test all valves in the system. Install battery. (Battery sold separately)

Check for system leaks.

Provide information and quote for all repairs needed exceeding $100.00

Examine each zone and adjust for adequate coverage.

Where applicable, install pump, suction line, check valve, and filter (quote will be supplied).

Inspect and adjust the system for proper coverage.

Check function of all heads and nozzles.


Nassar Landscaping & Irrigation, Inc recommends a sprinkler tune-up at least once a month, from April thru October. The sprinkler and irrigation tech sets your sprinkler time clock by time of year. More watering in June, July, and August, less in April, May, September and October. The sprinkler tech will also check each watering zone to make sure that it is efficiently watering your New Hampshire lawn.

Over time sprinkler heads wear out for several reasons.

Grass can grow over the heads blocking the sprinkler from popping-up to its full height.

Debris can block the sprinkler head.

Tree roots may depress the pipe causing water stoppages.

Landscape plants can block the spray pattern of the sprinkler head.

Careless mowing can cut some of the sprinkler head.


In order to keep your system at its peak performance, and possibly avoid high water bills caused from undetected leaks, it is best to have a seasoned professional routinely go over your sprinkler and irrigation system from top to bottom.
