With an expected freeze Sunday night, San Juan Nurseries recommends winterizing your sprinkler system to prevent pipe damage.


1. Locate the manual shut off valve to your sprinkler system and turn off the water.

2. Open the drain.

3. Briefly cycle through each zone (from controller) to relieve pressure in the main line, and zone pipes.

4. Turn the controller to the “OFF” position.  Remove the battery to prevent corrosion.  Unplug the controller.


Stay warm friends!!

Now that’s ‘advice you can grow with’!
