Is a Sprinkler System Right for You?

should i get a sprinkler system

So, you’re considering an irrigation system for your lawn. Maybe the neighbor’s grass is making you as green as their lawn with jealousy, or maybe a better looking lawn was part of your 2021 New Year’s Resolution. Either way, you want to improve appearance of your yard, and you may be asking yourself, “should I get a sprinkler system?”

All plants needs water, of course. Automating that process not only makes your life easier, but it also ensures your landscape gets the water it needs on a regular, consistent basis. When it comes to sprinkler systems, there are a lot of choices. From hose attachments to smart wi-fi irrigation, there’s no shortage of options available. Here are a few tips to help you decide what’s right for you and your lawn.

Do You Water Your Lawn?

A good place to start is with your current lawn care practice. If you are already good about watering your lawn with the hose, then convenience is probably one of your larger concerns. What you may find surprising, however, is that an irrigation system might actually save water when compared to using a hose.

Since a sprinkler system can be set to precise watering times, you can minimize the amount of wasted water. Advanced systems can even be set up with weather detecting technology so the system won’t run during the rain. Other sensors can be set up that even measure your soil and air conditions.

If you don’t currently water your lawn manually, you probably just don’t have the time. Having a sprinkler system will obviously solve this problem. You can configure your system to turn on and off automatically. Some irrigation systems can even be controlled via smartphone app. This gives maximum flexibility and control over your lawn’s irrigation.

How Much Do You Care?

Let’s be honest, you may not care that much about how your grass looks. If you’re reading this, however, that’s probably not the case. You can’t expect to have a picture-perfect lawn if you don’t have some form of irrigation. Watering by yourself with a hose isn’t going to make a huge difference unless you’re spending a long time, making sure you totally saturate the soil. In today’s fast-paced society, most homeowners don’t have the time to spend hours a week watering their grass. Even mowing the grass is too time-consuming for many homeowners.

That doesn’t mean you don’t want a great looking lawn though! Installing a sprinkler system is the perfect solution to this problem. You’ll have a great looking lawn and it will all happen automatically! We do recommend that you have your system inspected regularly to make sure it’s working its best. If you really want the best looking yard, you can’t sacrifice irrigation.
