The rain has slowed its pace here in Loveland, Windosr, and Berthoud CO and lawns are now beginning to show signs of poor sprinkler systems.

If you see brown spots or patches in your lawn and the rest of it is green, the first thing to check is your sprinkler system. The heads may be turned the wrong direction, they may not be popping up, or they may be blocked by shrubs or trees.

It is a good idea to check your sprinklers at least once a month to be sure your lawn remains as healthy as possible.
