Spring Equinox | In tune with the season

The spring (or vernal) equinox, is the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator, an imagined line in the sky above Earth’s equator, from south to north. It is the point when both day and night are of equal length and marks the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. Until the eighteenth century, the spring equinox was considered by many parts, to mark the start of the new year. This is a time when light and dark have evened out, and we rejoice at the opportunity to emerge from winter anew.

Reminder! This is exactly the time of year to have your irrigation system serviced and winterized for the colder months ahead. To minimize the risk of freeze damage to costly components, this important step safeguards your investment by blowing out the irrigation equipment with compressed air and releasing any water that may be present in the system.
