Forever Green Irrigation

I’ve lived in my house now almost 3 years. In that time, the sprinkler system has had one watering zone that never worked. The valves were easily accessible, and I was somewhat able to determine the problem, but I just never took the time to really learn irrigation systems. Finally, after last year’s drought and the havoc it brought to my yard (amazingly one area was VERY dry,) I decided not to do that again this summer. So, while I was doing some reviews, I decided to search for a sprinkler repair company. I found Forever Green Irrigation on Kudzu.com. I spoke with Ira, the owner, and he made arrangements to come to my house and see what the problem was. He arrived promptly and got to work. A quick review of my system revealed that it was probably not professionally installed, or the professional who installed it was very inexperienced. Regardless, Ira had that bad zone 3 working in 10 minutes with a valve rebuild. Zone 2 had died just a few days before, and it was one of the valves you can get at Lowes, so Ira wasn’t a fan. He had to go to his supplier to get a replacement, and after about 30 minutes, he was back and on the job again. Fifteen minutes later, I’m watering like Niagra Falls.

So this year, hopefully we don’t have a summer that is as brutal as last year. And since we are still on water restrictions, I get to water on Tuesdays and Saturdays. My first Tuesday watering was very successful. I could just hear those blades of grass shouting “Thank you! Thank you, kind, loving home owner!” My I do have a vivid imagination.
