Sprinkler systems are huge time savers as well as save you money on water. When someone waters their lawn by hand or sprinkler head they attach to a hose, they use so much more water. That water is wasted. Your grass in your lawn will only absorb so much. In addition to that, your time is valuable. We have only so much time on earth, so it’s important we treasure every minute doing something we value. If you value your lawn that’s great, but a sprinkler system can take care of your lawn without wasting any of your time. For these reasons, you should consider getting a sprinkler system.
Sprinkler companies can come by your home to give you a free estimate if you are interested. If you have an idea of which system you want you should let them know. They have to develop a design for your specific property because every property is different. It’s important to do your own research and determine which system you like and why. They have so many out there. I would also suggest getting several quotes to ensure you are getting the best price for the system you want. Consider the reputation of the company you pick also.
Water sprinklers will last you at least a decade with minimal maintenance expenses. The occasional sprinkler head needs to be cleaned or replaced. It is important to note that when temperatures below freezing or hard freezes, you will have to winterize your system. I would definitely have a sprinkler technician do an assessment of your system after every winter to check and make sure no pipes burst or nothing needs to be fixed due to wear and tear with time. Other than that, your sprinkler system will run automatically without your help, sweat, or tears. This is so important, because when you watered the lawn by hand or by moving the hose around it still never did the job. There were parts of your lawn that would die that I call dry patches. You definitely wouldn’t get “Lawn of the Season” in your neighborhood without one of these amazing systems.
Automatic sprinkler systems make it an easy choice for me. You don’t have to stand outside or forget you left the hose on. Another awesome thing about these systems is a rain sensor. If your lawn receives heavy rains or rains a couple of days in a row, the rain sensor knows it. Your sprinkler system won’t turn on for the next couple of mornings to allow the drenched lawn to drain all that water. I used to have a sprinkler system without this feature. It would turn on even when it was raining. I knew when I got my new system that it had to have that feature. I got the best of the best sprinkler systems, Rain Bird sprinkler system. It’s a serious system that operates automatically and adjusts for your landscape, temperature, and rainfall. The best thing about this system is that it will take into account dips and hills. So if you have a slope in your land, the downward slope would receive less time with the sprinkler than say a flat level property. Technology has sure come around with sprinkler systems. It’s easy to see why every business and homeowner should have one.
