Making sure that you take care of your turf with a solid fertilization program is the first step to good lawn care. However, that won’t be enough. A good irrigation system is what really brings it home. By combining your lawn care with a well set-up sprinkler system, your lawn will be able to thrive all year long.
See how installing and keeping up with an irrigation system can save you time, money, and bring your lawn so many benefits!
Save, save, save! That is really what an irrigation system does for you. Garden hoses are said to use 9-17 gallons of water per minute, depending on a few variants. a properly installed and working irrigation system uses a solid 15 gallons per minute – and the sprinkler system has more perks than a garden hose.
You won’t have to struggle with making time to stand outdoors for a long time – you might even save yourself a sunburn with that advantage. You also won’t need to make time in your day to get out and water. For a good schedule, you would need to do this one to three times a day. Even with everyone working from home lately, we don’t know anyone with that kind of time (or patience).
You will also reap the benefits of being able to tailor your system to the needs of your lawn. Each part of your lawn or garden may need different amounts of water at different times. With a good system, you will be able to create zones and build the perfect watering system for the unique needs of your turf.
If you are putting in all this time and effort for a good fertilization schedule, pest control, and disease control, you don’t want to let a poor watering system be the bane of your lawn’s existence. Lawn care is not just a one-and-done type of deal. Over time, you will need to adjust to your lawn’s needs because they are ever-changing.
If you think about it, your lawn is a living thing. You adjust your diet when needed, you treat yourself differently depending on how you feel. The same goes for your turf. So just by ensuring your sprinkler system is in tip-top shape every growing season, you will be able to create the perfect environment for your turf.
