Aeration, or core cultivation, is standard lawn care. Aerating a lawn means supplying the soil with air, usually by poking holes in the ground throughout the lawn using an aerator. It reduces soil compaction and helps control thatch in lawns while helping water and fertilizer move into the root zone. The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil. Excess lawn thatch or heavy organic debris buried under the grass surface can also starve the roots from these essential elements.
We warranty our blowouts up until the first freezing temperature of 32 degrees or colder is reported anywhere in the Treasure Valley. We do not warranty any heads or piping (PVC or Metal) that is not buried in-ground and are exposed to open air including backflows, pumps, fittings and filters. We will do everything we can to properly winterize backflows by opening the test cocks, turning the ball valves to a 45 degree angle and opening the drain valve, but we will not be held liable if a break occurs. We do not warranty above-ground pumps. We will pull the drain valve and blow water out of them, but it is the responsibility of the homeowner to ensure their pump is completely dry. We strongly recommend if possible, to disconnect and remove your above ground pump and store inside. We do not warranty deep shut and drain valves. There is no way to winterize these valves and over time they can and do fail.
For sprinkler installation and repair work performed, we warranty all sprinklers parts that fail in the same season they are installed in.
