A beautiful lawn is not only visually appealing, it’s inviting. It makes people think of running barefoot and enjoying a summer afternoon with friends and family.
The key to that beautiful lawn is proper watering. “No problem!” you might say. “Let me grab the hose!” Actually, there’s a better way: sprinkler installation. This is why:
Water Your Lawn Evenly
Watering by hand can result in some areas of the yard being almost flooded and others not getting a drop. After awhile, you’ll notice lush patches and dry patches, which is probably not the look you’re doing for. DIY Network says lawns generally need between one and one-and-a-half inches of water per week. Can you be sure you’re providing that when you do it by hand? And what if it rains? A sprinkler system can include a rain sensor to prevent overwatering.
When you water too much, the ground can’t absorb it and the water runs off, resulting in waste.
Wasted water is still water you have to pay for. With the efficiency of a sprinkler system, you’ll know that your water bill covered water your lawn actually needed and used. And if you choose to sell your home, a sprinkler system adds value to your property.
A lawn should be watered in the early morning or evening, which means you might need to get up earlier or take time away from other activities to get it done. With a sprinkler system, your lawn won’t suffer if you forget, get home late, or spend a week out of town.
