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

Baytown Rental Property Watering Their Lawn with Sprinkler SystemWhen a Baytown rental property has an automatic sprinkler system, it is prone to pull-in quality, long-term residents. However, sprinkler systems need to be managed and maintained regularly and correctly, just like any other aspect of a rental property.

Sprinkler systems will have to be winterized in the fall, which means they need to be drained and turned off before the first deep freeze hits. And soon as spring comes around again, sprinkler systems would have to be reviewed for damage and then turned on soon as any wanted maintenance or repairs have been finished.

But who is in charge of handing these repair and maintenance tasks? That is based upon what terms are included in your lease. Quite a lot of landlord will have tenants perform routine sprinkler system maintenance and turning them on or off in each one season. A number of others may take on more oversight of the process since busted sprinkler pipes can create extensive property damage very quickly and a busted system will make it stressful for the renter to continue to maintain a healthy lawn or landscape features week after week.

Despite that some tenants may be experienced enough to handle basic sprinkler system maintenance and even quite a few repairs, having them accomplish it is still taking a chance. If your renters miss winterizing the system, you could surely have a flooded mess on your hands soon afterward. Or, if they don’t have the level of skills to fix a broken pipe or sprinkler head, they may leave lawns or trees to die.

If you don’t plan on doing sprinkler system maintenance and repair yourself, your safest choice is to work with a professional landscape company to accomplish it for you. That way, you can be sure that the job gets done and will get done correctly, every year. Regretfully, not all landscape companies provide top-grade service and you will start to notice that the costs can sneak up on you and add up quickly.
