Everyone notices a plush, full, green lawn, especially during the drier months of the summer. A beautiful lawn adds to a home’s curb appeal, and when considering the cost of sod or even top soil and seed, it’s important to ensure proper watering to avoid the need for a new lawn. Lawns that are not properly watered will become dry and prone to weed growth. At Stay Green, we would like to share the top three advantages of installing a sprinkler system.
1. Beauty - As mentioned, everyone notices a gorgeous lawn. Proper irrigation will result in a healthy lawn that is free of weeds when it’s combined with comprehensive fertilization. Without a sprinkler system, your lawn will fight a losing battle while competing with large trees or bushes for available water.
2. Water Conservation - Believe it or not, when your sprinkler system is used properly, you can actually conserve water while also ensuring beauty. Proper irrigation is done in the early morning hours just as the sun rises. When your entire lawn is watered regularly at this time, you will use less water than your neighbor who uses a sprinkler all day in an attempt to turn their brown lawn green.
3. Longevity - Properly maintained sprinkler systems can be expected to perform optimally for decades. In general, sprinkler systems require service in the fall to blow the air out of the lines and eliminate the risk of freezing and bursting. Other than that, sprinkler systems are relatively maintenance free, and considering their longevity, they are a wise investment.
