A well-maintained lawn highlights the home in a beautiful frame of green while providing additional space for children’s games and summer parties. One of the keys to good-looking expanses of green is proper watering, and one of the easiest ways to ensure proper watering is through a lawn irrigation system. Here are some of the benefits of installing an irrigation system.
The routine for hand-watering quickly becomes tiresome. Once or twice a week, you have to get up before sunrise so the sun’s heat doesn’t make the moisture disappear. You need to take the hose from storage, uncoil it, and attach it to the faucet in front. After you turn on the water, you need to stand in different places in the front yard to ensure that you cover all of the lawn and plants. You must then repeat the process for the backyard before recoiling the hose and storing it again.
With a lawn irrigation system, the only time you have to set it up is during the installation. You specify when and how often you want irrigation to happen, and then the system conveniently and automatically waters your lawn with no further intervention from you. Some systems even contain a rain sensor that shuts off the sprinklers when it rains so you don’t waste any water.
When you’re standing with a hose in your hand, how do you know how much water to use on a section of your lawn before moving on? You may underwater or, in most cases, overwater. A lawn irrigation system dispenses the right amount of water that you specify each time, which conserves the precious liquid. If the system contains a smart moisture sensor, it can dispense the right amount of water based on the wetness and dryness of the landscape.
Increase the Home’s Value
A beautiful lawn increases the curb appeal and value of your home. In addition, potential home buyers prefer the convenience of a properly installed lawn irrigation system over having to water the lawn by hand.
