4 Reasons to Invest in New Irrigation

Watering and landscaping go hand in hand. When the driest months of the summer hit, green lawns turn brown and flowers begin to wilt in the heat. Irrigation can give your landscaping the moisture it needs to survive without needing to manually water your lawn and plants. If you do not have irrigation or have an older system, a new irrigation or sprinkler system can ensure your landscaping gets the water it needs, with new options that can make it easier and more efficient.

  1. Even watering. Do you have uneven spots in your yard? New irrigation can give you even watering that ensures that all your grass gets the same amount of moisture for a lovely green lawn.
  2. Irrigation for gardens. You can tie in irrigation for your flower beds, gardens and even hanging plants around your home. This makes it easier to maintain all your landscaping and plants, not just your lawn.
  3. Efficiency. New irrigation systems are built for efficiency. Timers and other options can help reduce the amount of water you use, saving money and reducing water waste during the hottest months of summer.
  4. Go Smart. The smart options on new irrigation systems are amazing. They can give you remote access to your irrigation system, with smart sensors that detect moisture levels in the soil, rain and other elements. Your irrigation can be automated, helping you maintain your landscaping even when you are away from home.

If you are ready to upgrade your irrigation for your landscaping, contact a local landscaper. They can inspect your property and make recommendations for a system that will make it easier and more efficient to maintain your landscaping.

The Efficiency of Drip Irrigation Systems

One of the best ways to protect your lawn is with a well-planned and implemented irrigation system, as regular watering and fertilization is essential to the maintenance of a healthy and beautiful landscape. Keeping your lawn and landscaping green not only enhances the beauty of your home but also increases the value of your home. Sprinklers and irrigation systems are not just convenient (better than hauling hoses around your yard every night), they are necessary for your lawn care and maintenance.

Proponents of drip irrigation claim that it is the most efficient method. In comparison with sprinkler systems that top out at 75%-85% efficiency, drip systems boast above 90%, which simply means that less water is wasted. Some of the benefits of drip irrigation systems include its ease of design and installation, is less costly than automatic sprinkler systems, and reduces the disease problems caused from high levels of moisture on some plants. Drip irrigation works by applying water slowly to the soil, where it can soak into the plant’s roots before evaporating or running off. Instead of water spraying on top of the plants and everywhere else, it goes where it is most needed.

As previously stated, drip systems can be easy to design and install; however, some guidelines need to be followed to ensure optimal functioning. If you are new to drip irrigation systems but are considering having one installed for your landscaping needs, consult with your local landscaping professional. Your landscaper can help you design and install a system that will be specifically tailored to address your individual landscaping watering needs. With the help of your landscaping professional, your plants will get the vital nutrients they need for abundant growth, while, at the same time, conserving water by not wasting it needlessly.
