Why Are Pavers Such Great Building Blocks for Patios, Driveways and Walkways?

Some of the benefits of pavers include:

Lower Cost of Ownership: Paver projects have a lower total cost of ownership than similar concrete projects. They do cost a little more up front but they last longer with much less maintenance than concrete.

Long Lifetime: Pavers stand up to harsh weather without costly repairs. The average paver patio lasts 30 years. Unlike concrete, pavers projects are segmented, so even when there is an issue it means replacing a tile or two: no jackhammers required.

Incredible Durability: Pavers are much sturdier than most other patio, driveway and walkway materials. The average paver can withstand loads four times heavier than poured concrete. This is ideal if you plan to set up an outdoor dining space on your patio, especially if you have a grill. In the winter, you may want to use your patio for temporary storage, which also requires a high level of durability.

Paver steps are incredibly durable

Pavers are seriously weather-resistant: New Hampshire receives nearly 20% more precipitation than the national average, which causes many types of natural stone and concrete to fade, corrode, and crack over time. Weather changes cause asphalt driveways to heave and break apart. Therefore, local residents should only use yard surface materials that can withstand excessive rain and snow. The pavers that we use at Firmly Rooted Landscaping are made from corrosion-resistant materials, so you don’t have to worry that your investment will deteriorate with harsh weather.

Pavers have beautiful aesthetics: Poured concrete is functional, but it’s not exactly pretty. You will have your patio, driveway and walkways for a long time, so it’s important to make sure you’ll enjoy looking at them. Paver surfaces add to property values. Do you want your outdoor space to be functional, or do you want it to be functional, gorgeous and inviting? Our pavers come in a wide range of tones and colors. We can even help you choose the one that best complements your property!

Pavers require minimal maintenance: Pavers require very little maintenance. Any outdoor surface will require a yearly cleanup with a hose or power washer. Even pavers aren’t self-cleaning. But you won’t need to do much work to keep your patio, walkway or driveway looking nice. In other words, you can just focus on enjoying your outdoor space!

4 Beautiful Ways to Light Your Outdoors

NH Outdoor Lighting

Have you ever really stood back and appreciated your yard?

Beautiful lawn and home lighting, Weare NH

You’re making something that’s beautiful during the day.

But it’s invisible at night.

Outdoor landscape lighting adds both safety and beauty to your home.

Lights give you a nice atmosphere for hanging out with the family and guests.

Lights give you safety when walking, and they deter intruders.

You can light up everything outside, including the home, walking paths, the driveway, trees, water features, and the patio.

With landscape lighting, you have a new world after dark.

Stay outside longer after dinner.

Enjoy the waterfall at night.

Appreciate the beautiful piece of New Hampshire you have in your yard.


Outdoor landscaper lighting for the waterfall

If you have a fountain, pond, or waterfall, you know how calming and peaceful the water can be.

You can hear the water at night, but you can’t really see it.

With the right lighting, you can have beautiful water features at night.

You can see the water moving.

You can watch the koi swimming.

And you can light up the fountain in beautiful colors.


Spotlight on a tree

DIY tree lighters usually use only bottom lights.

Did you know that you can light trees from the top as well?

To avoid dark spots and glare, use the correct angles, and overlap the illumination areas.

Trees with darker leaves require brighter lights.

If you have a many trees, it’s important to choose the right ones to light, so everything stays in proportion.


Patio Lighting: Light the pergola, stay out later

We have such nice summer evenings in New Hampshire.

By lighting the patio perimeter, you create a special space to enjoy the evening air.

You can keep the lights subtle around the table, but give the grill master a bright light for cooking.

For safety, light the walkways and steps, too.

Wall lights help to define the patio edges.

Some wall lights are so attractive that they’re part of the patio’s decoration.

Both lantern and wall lights come in beautiful designs.


Outdoor Home lights for safety and security

Intruders look for your home’s dark areas.

This is where they hide while breaking in.

Dark areas give them a place where neighbors won’t see them.

Lighting up the house isn’t just a way to show off your home.

It’s also a fantastic way to increase your home’s safety.

Path and driveway lights make your home safe to walk around at night.

Spotlights take away the the hiding areas that thieves like.

Irrigation: Fall/Winter Shutdown Service

Fall / Winter Sprinkler Blowout Services For Commercial & Residential Irrigation Systems

A sprinkler blowout is necessary in the fall so that your irrigation system does not get ruined by winter’s harsh temperatures. The last thing that you want is your sprinkler system’s pipes cracking. This does not make for a pleasant surprise once spring rolls around. Even if you think that you have drained your sprinkler system, there can still be water left in the pipes that will be susceptible to freezing in winter. That’s why it is important to have a professional do the job for you. At Firmly Rooted, we have years of experience winterizing both commercial and residential irrigation systems.

It is important to winterize your irrigation sprinkler system by getting a blow out every fall

Blowing out a sprinkler system can actually be dangerous, which is why it is best to have an expert perform this service. An air compressor is used that utilizes great strength that can be harmful to various body parts, especially the eyes. The process includes shutting off both the water supply and the system’s backflow valves. Once the compressor is hooked up, air must be slowly released into the sprinkler system.

The Order of Operations Matters

There is also a specific order in which you should blow out the system, zone by zone, which varies on a case-by-case basis. It is also important that you do not continue to pump air into the system after it is dry, as that can cause heat damage. Furthermore, it is also imperative that all valves are not shut off at once while the air compressor is still running, as this can damage the entire system.

We are Irrigation Experts

At Firmly Rooted, our expert landscapers know how to blow out a sprinkler system properly. We can ensure that your irrigation pipes will not freeze this winter. Don’t jeopardize the investment you’ve already made in your sprinkler system by not winterizing it before the first freeze. If your irrigation system freezes, it will be a big expense and a big inconvenience to dig up your whole yard in order to get it fixed. Contact us today for your fall blow out and rest assured that you’ll be ready to water your lawn come spring!

Irrigation: Spring Sprinkler Startup Services for NH Homes and Businesses

When you startup your sprinkler system in the spring, you must be aware of any potential damage the system may have endured during the harsh winter months. Improper startup can cause costly damage to your irrigation system. That’s why you should always have the experts at Firmly Rooted ensure that your system is good to go before you start it up each spring.

Protect Your Irrigation Pipes from the New Hampshire Cold

Snow and ice can have adverse effects on your sprinkler system, as winter always poses the potential threat of leaks or damage to various parts of your irrigation system. There are many different aspects of the system that could be damaged—such as lines, valves, backflows, and heads. If you start up your irrigation system without checking these first, you could cause further damage.

Take Care of the Small Issues So They Don’t Get Bigger

At Firmly Rooted, we take all of the steps necessary to ensure that your irrigation system is safe to turn on come spring. We test water pressure, flow, and direction and also make sure that each zone is operating properly and reaching the needed components of your landscape. We will even adjust the sprinkler heads for optimal coverage.

Check the Timer, Sensor and Batteries

There are other elements of your sprinkler system that are important to check too. These include the timer and rain sensor, which might also need battery replacements. We will make sure that every component of your irrigation system is ready before you turn it on for the season!

Irrigation Installation for NH Homes and Businesses

Irrigation Installation For NH Properties, Handled By Our Lawn Care Experts

With the installation of a sprinkler system, you never have to worry about watering your lawn and softscapes again

Looking for irrigation installation services in New Hampshire? At Firmly Rooted, we are experts when it comes to installing new sprinkler systems. This is not the kind of project that you want to do on your own. From designing the best layout for your property, to digging trenches, laying piping, and hooking up the water line—irrigation installation can be a tricky process. No worries though, because we are here to serve you!

Irrigation System Design Tailored To Your Property

New Hampshire has very different types of landscapes. The design of your irrigation system is largely dependent upon your yard’s size and terrain. A good irrigation design ensures that the sprinkler heads reach all of the landscape elements that need to get watered. At Firmly Rooted, we can design a system that works for your yard’s unique features.

Installation Carefully Managed By Our Experts

Once the design of your system is decided upon, we hook up the water supply and start digging. We also begin laying out the piping and assembling parts before we begin installing the different components. It’s important to follow a pattern of laying each sprinkler one by one before actually connecting the various parts of the system together.

Once the piping is assembled, we manually flush out each part of the system to ensure that every piece is working properly. Once that is verified, we can move on to attaching the sprinkler heads. To finish up the installation, we connect the sprinkler valves to a timer, test each zone individually, adjust the direction and power of the spray, and make sure everything is working great! Then, we can fill back in those trenches, and your irrigation system is ready to be used!

A sprinkler system lets you never worry about watering again!
