This is the second installment of 11 Things You Need to Know Before Hiring a Landscaping Company which can also be downloaded as a free eBook.

If you’ve made the decision to use a landscaper, it’s incredibly important to check them out. You should never hire a Naples landscaping company that doesn’t carry insurance.

Ask your landscaper if they have Liability and Workers’ Compensation Insurance. Liability Insurance protects a landscaper from being sued for negligence or injury. Workers’ Compensation Coverage covers workers who hurt themselves while working on the job. When your landscaper has insurance coverage, they will pay for medical expenses, lost wages and other unexpected costs of an accident.

Daylight Savings Time 2011 Ends Soon

Posted by Mike On October 20, 2011

Reset Your Sprinkler's Timer to Coincide with Daylight Savings Time 2011

WHEN:  Sunday, November 6th, 2011 at 2 a.m.

What does Daylight Savings Time have to do with my Irrigation System?

You will need to reset your Timer’s clock or risk receiving a fine by your local government for watering outside the allotted times.  Remember it is the clock; not the start times programmed for each zone.

As the old saying goes “Spring Ahead and Fall Back”.  You’ll need turn your Timer Clock back by one hour.  Do not forget to check for AM or PM.  This is commonly overlooked, and then you’ll wonder why the sprinklers go on during the day when they should go on during the night.

If you are anything like us, we do this so infrequently that we forget how to change the clocks.  We, at R & R Sprinkler & Landscape will come out to do this for you for a onetime charge of $39.00.

Just contact us online or call the office at 239-772-2607 to set an appointment.  We will schedule a technician to come to your home, adjust the Timer for you, and show you how it is done for the next time.

You’ll not only gain an hour of sleep, but you can rest easy knowing your Irrigation System will still run on its scheduled time.
