The do-it-yourself attitude can get you far in life, particularly when it comes to maintaining your home. However, no matter how tempting it is to do everything yourself, there are significant limitations when it comes to keeping your lawn appropriately watered if you plan to do it by hand. Ultimately, most of us end up overwatering or falling significantly short of a lawn’s requirements, which is why installing a lawn sprinkler system can turn a headache into an effortlessly efficient solution. In addition to the basics of saving time and cutting bills, here are the other top reasons to go professional when it comes to setting up your lawn sprinkler system:
Over time, a professional lawn sprinkler system is designed to save you money both on your water bill and in upkeep on the lawn, although that’s just scratching the surface in terms of your total investment. When it comes time to sell your home, a sprinkler system can immediately add curb appeal, especially in summer months when other lawns on the block are starting to turn. Additionally, sprinkler systems are easy to market to environmentally conscious home buyers by stressing the limited water runoff, low-volume drip irrigation technology, and the overall efficiency of a professional system.
No matter how many different sprinklers you can find online or at your local home improvement store, finding the perfect system to fit your specific lawn is usually a fool’s errand. Not only will professionals find the correct basic equipment to fit the size and shape of your lawn but you can also take into consideration the rainfall of your region. With state-of-the-art wireless rain censors, a professionally installed sprinkler system can perfectly mesh with your climate to ensure that you’re always adding the exact amount of water that is needed.
Dictate to the lawn, not the other way around:
Lawns can actually be one of the most demanding parts of the home. Unless you’re an extreme early bird, you probably don’t want to get up at 4 a.m. just to water the lawn – even though that’s generally the best time of the day to do it. Automatizing the lawn will not only save you the time it takes to water by hand but it will completely take the pressure off to stay on top of the lawn, allowing you to appreciate it without it turning into a hassle. A sprinkler system also keeps your lawn on track when you’re away on vacation, negating the need to have a neighbor or friend pitch in to keep your lawn vibrant.
