Backflow Prevention

Emerald Companies (St. Cloud, MN) is pleased to announce a new, important service to our valued customers. Mark is now a certified inspector in the state of Minnesota for backflow preventers. Your irrigation system is required by law to be inspected periodically for backflow prevention. Emerald Companies is now expanding to include this service, with our certified professional you can trust. Call Mark if you need yours inspected (320) 251-5296. Having your older backflow inspected is a good idea. Contamination in your backflow preventer can prevent water from going through properly. This can bring contact with soil that goes into your water in your home and possibly the municipal water supply. Put your mind at ease with backflow inspection by Mark! This low-cost consultation ensures your water is safe. This is applicable to wells, too! Backflow preventers are mandatory for new construction, and will be installed in 2017 going forward. Now is the time to get your existing irrigation inspected. Call today to set up your consultation!

Pre-Emergent Vs. Post-Emergent

Pre-Emergent Vs. Post-EmergentNow is the time to think about repairing that winter damage to your lawn. Emerald Companies (St. Cloud, MN) wants to remind you of a few basics. When your lawn first emerges with spring melt, remember that less is more. It's tempting to want to rake up the dry brown grass, but you risk pulling it up by the roots. Better to wait and let nature take its course. Our expert staff at Emerald Companies will come out and assess when it's time for pre-emergent. Pre-emergent can be applied even when it's drizzling, and cooler weather that leaves your yard around 55 degrees is ideal. There is still time to get on our list to get your pre-emergent down! Post-emergent needs drier weather—it needs to stay dry on the leaf to do its job. A good rule of thumb is when the lilacs start to bloom, your post-emergent window is closing. If this all sounds confusing, never fear! Emerald Companies takes care of the heavy lifting for you and walks you through all the terminology for your lawn. Call today and get on our books for your spring greening: (320) 251-5296.

Protect Your Irrigation System with the Help of Emerald Companies

Every year, before the first freeze, the ritual of irrigation "blow out" becomes the priority for all irrigation systems that are in the St. Cloud, Waite Park, Sartell, and Sauk Rapids area (and beyond). 

Because of the potential dangers involved in winterization, it is best to contact the experts at Emerald Companies and not to tackle the project on your own. To minimize the risk of freeze damage to your irrigation system, you'll need to "winterize" your irrigation system. Irrigation systems in areas where "winterization" is mandatory are installed using one of three types of water removal in mind: manual drain, auto drain, or blowout.

Contact Emerald Companies today to find out which type of winterization is best for your irrigation system. Keep your winter worry-free when it comes to your lawn with the help of Emerald Companies.
