A HEALTHY LAWN
It is important to make sure that you are giving your lawn the best chance to be and remain healthy.
Larger yards take a lot of time to water by hand. Depending on the plants you grow, they may need watering twice a week during the summer. Installing an irrigation system may seem like a big endeavor but sprinkler configurations have several advantages.
Conserves Water and Time
Hand watering with a hose or watering can takes substantial time and early morning and evening watering rituals take away from family and work. Sprinkler irrigation systems have timers that can be preset for daily or weekly watering so you do not need to monitor the watering because the timer shuts the water off when it has finished. Your water bill should be lower if the irrigation system is effective.
Preserves Soil Structure and Nutrients
Watering with a wide open garden hose may allow too much water to seep into the soil. As a result, nutrients leach out with the water runoff, leaving the plants with fewer nutrients available. The soil may also become compacted when you water with a hose. Plants may show signs of withering or root disease with suffocating, compacted soil. Using sprinkler irrigation produces smaller droplets, helping to preserve nutrients and reducing soil compaction.
