Conserving water is both an environmental and an economic issue, one that confronts every lawn’s homeowner.The ‘green way to green’ is to make water conservation a primary concern while maintaining a healthy, green lawn.
Florida lawns require continuous care and monitoring throughout the year and they do require water to survive. The amount of water used is the concern of every environmentally and frugally conscious homeowner. How to maintain a lawn and use only as much water as necessary needs careful thought and a plan of action.
Manual Watering vs Home Irrigation Systems
Manual watering using portable sprinklers for lawns is neither efficient nor green. The lawn watering schedule is dependent on when the homeowner is present and has the time to spend monitoring and re-positioning the portable sprinklers. The homeowner’s time is a key factor since portable sprinklers are cumbersome, frustrating to work with and time consuming to deploy. As the watering schedule is not necessarily based on weather conditions, appropriate time of day for watering, or regularity, manual watering results in both over-watering and under-watering conditions. Water conservation is never the primary concern when portable sprinklers are the delivery system.
Home irrigation systems are efficient and inherently green. They are designed to meet specific lawn requirements, scheduled to run according to seasonal weather conditions, and automatically engaged according to predetermined schedules. Irrigation system specialists understand the environmental and economic issues that demand special attention be given to water conservation. They employ state of the art equipment to optimize both water usage and lawn health. Water conservation is always the primary concern.
