This is the easiest of all the practices when maintaining a beautiful landscape. Your plants are tell-tale signs of how your landscape is doing. If one area seems to be lacking water, focus your irrigation efforts to balancing out the amount of water your landscape is getting. Depending on the weather, you may need to take extra precautions to keep some plants healthy! Planting for your region is a great way to prolong the life of your landscape.

For general landscaping maintenance, lawn care, gardening, and up keep, the average homeowner will spend $100 – $200/month. Cost will also depend on the size of your yard, your location, and the amount of work you need to have done on a regular basis.
Irrigation start-up and shut-down are included in most maintenance contracts. Although everyone starts up their irrigation system in the spring (when they have one,) not everyone has their system winterized. By not having the water blown out of the lines, the water can freeze and expand during cold temperatures causing damage to their system. The damage is often more expensive than just maintaining the system and having it winterized properly. Some contracts also include a monthly check-in for optimum usage/water efficiency. High Prairie’s contracts do include this pro-active step. By monitoring, we can adjust for optimum plant health and observe any repairs that may need done.
