It’s no surprise that commercial irrigation is an essential part of commercial real estate landscaping in Houston. Yet, many commercial property owners often overlook the importance of maintaining property irrigation during the winter months. By providing a comprehensive approach to commercial irrigation maintenance, commercial property owners can ensure that their landscaping remains healthy and attractive throughout the unpredictable weather conditions of Houston winters.
Proper winter maintenance can reduce the risk of costly repairs throughout the spring and summer months while avoiding overgrowth of weeds and other unwanted vegetation from overwatering or leaks.
In winter months, commercial irrigation systems need to be inspected and maintained for them to remain efficient and cost-effective all year round. Cold weather can cause pipes to burst and damage the valves, sprinkler heads, pumps, and other components of the commercial irrigation system. It’s important to make sure all parts of the commercial irrigation system are properly functioning and up to date to avoid costly repairs or replacement parts that may be needed later on. If you have any doubts, please contact LMC or your local maintenance company for a professional solution.
