-Sawdust-like material and/or sap oozing from small holes in trunks or branches
-Bark appears swollen and develops cracks
-Leaves in upper part of tree are discolored
If you said yes to any of the above, call a certified arborist for a tree health inspection.

Irrigation Systems During Freeze:
Irrigation installations include either a backflow or an RP device, usually located by the water meter, to prevent the undesirable flow of water into the potable water supply. Backflow devices are installed below-ground and RP devices are installed above-ground. When weather predictions indicate chances of a freeze, it is necessary to disable (turn off) RP devices and drain them, so as not to cause damage or warping of internal parts during the freeze. If you have any questions, feel free to call our front office and an experienced professional will be glad to help you.

Advantages of Two-Wire...
Lower material cost – especially on larger systems
Scalable – able to increase size by splicing into existing wire
Easier to repair – splicing two wires together rather than many
Lower labor costs – less maintenance time saves labor hours
Greener – less copper in the ground, lower impact
Smarter than conventional wire
Hidden cost recovery - reducing controller locations
Ease of installation - conventionally wired control system
Apply more water - reduce your water window requirements
Another advantage of two-wire: Able to extend the wire length limits to support larger systems. This configuration allows for larger irrigation systems with fewer controllers.
5 Requirements for Two-Wire Specification
Wire type: double-jacketed cable
Wire connections: waterproof (DBR/Y-6 or equivalent)
Wire length limits: varies by manufacturer
Device limits: varies by manufacturer
Surge protection: varies by manufacturer
