An important key to beautiful landscaping is a good home irrigation system. All the money invested on sod, plants, trees and shrubs is wasted if they don’t receive enough water to survive. Watering by hand with a hose or moving a sprinkler around the yard all day is time consuming and inefficient. Homeowners have enough daily demands and installing a home irrigation system can eliminate one of them. An irrigation system can ensure that your landscape gets the necessary a regular schedule and will save you time and money in the long run.
Automated Sprinkler System Irrigation
The automated sprinkler system is the most popular choice for home irrigation. This system will ensure that every area of your yard receives just the right amount of water at just the right time. Complete with a computerized “control center”, an automated sprinkler system lets you program how often and how long each area of your yard receives water. Once the system is programmed, you will no longer have to set aside time for watering or worry about enlisting a neighbor or family member to water your yard while you are on vacation.
Drip System Garden Irrigation
With large areas of the country experiencing drought and increased consciousness about water conservation, drip irrigation has gained popularity as a garden irrigation solution. This type of system provides low pressure, drip irrigation to specific plants, shrubs and trees. A nozzle is installed along an irrigation line at plant specific locations which “drips” water slowly into the soil when the system is turned on. Drip irrigation will not only appeal to the conservationist but is perfect for garden irrigation.
Irrigation System Maintenance
The nice thing about home irrigation systems is they are relatively maintenance free. Of course, there is the initial cost of the system and to hire a professional to install it, but after that, there is little maintenance to worry about. The only significant tasks needed to be kept up to date are repairing or replacing damaged sprinkler heads and flushing the sprinkler system come fall to prevent damage from freezing temperatures. Then just sit back, relax and enjoy your beautiful landscape. Forget about the chore of watering, your new irrigation system has that covered.
Too Much Water
Keep in mind, Mother Nature will provide your landscape with water from time to time as well and there is no “control center” for that. Proper drainage is as important for your landscape as proper irrigation. Once a drainage system is installed, drains just need to be kept clear of debris so excess water can flow freely. A drainage system can also be set up to recollect and filter the water drained from your landscape to be re-used, saving both money and water. Your landscape professional can determine where you need drainage and what type would be best for your property.
