This Friday & Saturday, October 4th-5th, is predicted to be pretty cold! We don’t know for sure if it will freeze in your area, but we always say: better safe than sorry! So we recommend this easy way to protect your sprinkler system from a possible freeze:
Get a cloth or towel, put it over the exposed irrigation pipes, then get a plastic bag, wrap it around, and secure it in place (duct tape works well). This will keep your exposed irrigation pipes safe until you can have the sprinklers blown out and winterized for the season. You can also turn off the water going out to your sprinklers from inside the house if possible.
Additionally, cover any vegetables and annuals with tarps or plastic to help protect them during this cold spell until the warm weather returns next week!
