Benefit Your Lawn and Garden by Adding an Irrigation
Adding an irrigation system is a good way of watering your grass and the plants in
your yard. You can set your system to water when you're not at home or when you're
sleeping, so in the summer your lawn gets watered when it is stil cool outside.
Watering when the sun is high in the sky and the temperatures are hot can cause
your grass and plants to be scorched, doing more harm than good.
You can choose to lay out an irrigation system yourself or you can hire a contractor to
do so. While instal ing a sprinkler system isn't hard, it does have to be designed so
there is enough overlap to ensure all of your grass is watered. Also, in some states
or territories, local regulations require that you hire a licensed plumber to tap into
potable water systems.
Irrigation System Benefits
Your lawn or garden can benefit from adding a sprinkler system and so can you. The
three biggest benefits for having one installed are:
Adding an automatic sprinkler system means you don't have to worry about forgetting
to water your lawn or garden. The ability to set-up your watering time in advance
frees you up from the obligation so you don't have to turn down social engagements
to water. You also don't have to drag your hose all over your lawn or garden and get
muddy from doing so.
Saves Water
Once you have your irrigation system installed, making use of it keeps you from over
watering your grass and your plants. Not only does this keep them healthier, but you
save water and, therefore, money. Saving water will also help in those areas where
water shortages are always a concern.
Curb Appeal
A professionally designed and installed irrigation system can add value to your home
by keeping the lawn and plants healthy and vibrant. Healthy plants add curb appeal
to your home and it can also add increase your property's value.
