Spring 2024 Maintenance Reminders

SPRINKLERS – if your home has an in-ground sprinkler system and you need assistance activating it for the season, here is who we recommend. Just be sure to inform them you are with Candela Properties.
1. Matt with JetSki Sprinklers – 719-661-6526 or jetskisprinklers.com
2. Joey with GrassRoots Irrigation – 719-391-2745
3. Gerry with TurfSurfers – 719-460-1728 or turfsurfers.net
4. Colorado Springs Irrigation – 719-344-8140
5. Dream Landscaping – 719-217-0478
LAWNS – Attached are guidelines for how much water your lawn needs throughout the year. Especially during the summer months, we find that interval watering (20 minutes am + 20 minutes pm vs. 40 minutes all at once) works well especially with the restrictions that start in May. Aeration and fertilization also help greatly in this climate. Scott’s TurfBuilder Plus 2 or Revive work fairly well, and local garden shops like Green Belt, Spencers or Don’s Garden have great options. But if you want professional assistance, we recommend the following landscape vendors.
1. Integrated Lawn – 719-528-5296
2. Lonestar Landscaping – 719-821-3331
3. J Rick Lawns – 719-445-9985
4. TurfSurfers – 719-460-1728
5. Dream Landscaping – 719-217-0478
GUTTERS – Please do a visual check of the gutter systems around your home, especially if you have well-established or large trees, pine needles, etc. We need to get those gutters clear of debris before monsoon season arrives. If you need assistance, please call
