This is the before picture…can’t wait to show the after!
So many of our clients have complained about their water bills doubling and tripling in the past few months. The reason it has been brought to our attention is because we are responsible for programming the irrigation controller for each lawn maintenance property.
We thought it would be informative to tell you about leak detection so you can rule that out as a problem.
1. Turn off all appliances in your house, pool fill, and do not use any water such as flushing toilets.
2. Go to water meter location, remove cover and there will be a leak detector dial. Write down setting where needle stopped.
5. If the indicator dial moves -turn off water supply to each toilet one at a time. Toilet leaks are commonly found.
We have found these steps to be very helpful for leak detection!
Cody Landscape highly recommends aerating your lawn the results are amazing!
Aerating a lawn involves removing small plugs of grass and soil from the ground, this procedure should performed once or twice a year during spring and fall. Your lawn will absorb nutrients more effectively after aerating. It also helps to prevent fertilizer and water runoff as well as strengthening the root system. The best part is the savings on your water bill!
Our irrigation team here at Cody Landscape flags each one of the sprinkler heads to prevent damage to them, aerates your lawn and applies fertilizer. The result is a lush, green healthy lawn!
Flowering quince is in bloom! It is one of my favorite shrubs. The scientific name is Chaenomeles japonica. Flowers are various shades of red, pink and white. It will grow in sun or shade but blooms better when planted in full sun.It is the first shrub to bloom each year.
I like to use this plant in cutting gardens or planted with an evergreen backdrop because it is deciduous. Flowering quince looks especially beautiful when cuttings are incorporated in an early spring indoor arrangement!~Shelly
We are now planning for spring color plantings…place your orders early for priority scheduling.
“From design to installation Cody, Shelly and their team of professionals handled our project as if it was being done in their own yard. We are very pleased with the end result and have recommended Cody Landscape to our friends”—

Being water wise benefits your landscape, environment, community, and budget. Outdoor residential irrigation accounts for as much as 60% of municipal water use in the summertime.
Occasional deep watering is better than frequent light watering. The amount of water to be used will vary tremendously from one site to the next depending on the soil, sun exposure and location. Consistency is the key.
A good rule of thumb for summer watering is one watering every third to fifth day for your landscape. Color plantings will require a bit more.
Obviously, rain, cloudy days, wind, drainage, type of watering, amount of water per time, and water bills all affect this schedule.
We can help you with any irrigation questions and concerns that you might have.
Remember to call and schedule an irrigation check and repair so that your system is functioning at 100% during the summer!
Also, don’t forget to have your rain and freeze sensors installed to bring your system into compliance with the new city codes.
