As spring arrives, your grass will start to come out of its winter dormancy. During this time, it is essential that it receives water regularly so it can regain its strength and become luscious and healthy. This is why you should always schedule your irrigation start-up in early spring. If there are any problems with your system, our team will offer solutions so you won't have to worry about your lawn experiencing prolonged periods without any water.

Schedule your irrigation start-up service before spring arrives to ensure a spot on our calendar!


Backflow testing will keep your water clean.

Irrigation system backflow happens when water starts to flow in the opposite direction than it is supposed to. This can be a very hazardous situation. That's because fertilizer and pesticides could be drawn into your main water line through your irrigation system, thus, reaching your household plumbing and contaminating your drinking water. Annual backflow testing is meant to prevent this from happening.

Backflow testing is an annual requirement in Missouri and needs to be done by certified professionals. At Sam's Turf Care, we have the certifications and know how to perform this test and ensure that your water is safe and your backflow prevention device is working correctly.
