You ever wonder how that neighbor with the green lush yard always looks amazing. It appears he has a secret hidden on how his yard is always so green, while you struggle summer after summer to keep your lawn alive. It can drive other neighbors crazy, but when you realize their secret is an automatic sprinkler system it will make you laugh. That’s it! All your property needs is a sprinkler system. It covers your property and waters it a couple of times a week. You can win the “Best Yard” award in your neighborhood. You don’t have to be jealous or kill yourself trying to come second.
Benefits of a Sprinkler System
If you are homeowner, you may have considered a sprinkler system once before. However until you see the real value of having one, you aren’t going to get one. Hands down one of the best benefits about owning an automatic sprinkler system is that it saves you time. Not only time, but have you ever watered your lawn and missed paths of your yard and not realize it till a grass patch starts dying. With these systems it will ensure your whole yard is thoroughly watered and no areas missed. One myth I would like to point out is incorrect is that sprinkler systems use more water over the long run. This is completely false.
Water conservation is a benefit you get when you own a water sprinkler. It saves you lots of money over the course of a year. When it comes to owning a Sprinkler System, you can be sure it will save you hundreds of dollars. That money could be used on vacation or savings. If you have ever hand watered your lawn, you most likely have become a victim to over-watering your lawn. This doesn’t occur when you have an automatic sprinkler system. The reason for this is because of the built-in sensors. It will register the amount of water present in the soil, and when it has been appropriately watered the system will shut off.
However if you used to water your lawn by hand or water hose, you could also under water your lawn causing dying grass and plants. Again, this is avoidable with a sprinkler system. The sensors in a sprinkler system will register the lack of water in the soil, and the sprinkler system continues till the correct amount of saturation occurs. I’d say this is the lazy man’s way to do it, and do it perfectly every watering. I hate wasting water using the hose or hand watering. I realize now that it not only drives up the water bill, but it can kill your lawn, increase weeds, and increase the amount of mosquitoes too.
Another problem when I used to water my yard with a hose, I would forget to turn it off. My yard would be watered for 2-3 hours. That is not a good thing at all and can be prevented with a sprinkler system installation.
